You gain a idea of what typical church looks like. There is an entrance porch, lovely stained glass and carved altars. There is a modern crucifix on the exterior wall of the courtyard.

A lovely church next to San Telmo plaza that has stunning rose windows and the stonework catches the light magically throughout the day.

Preferred this place to the other church in SS. Firstly its free, and secondly it has a really peaceful atmosphere. Quiet and restful. Lots of interesting history - get a local guide for a few euros to give you the details.

The altar has several levels decorated with saints. It is an impressive piece and is as tall as the ceiling. On the outside, the structure seems very solid with heavy walls. The church is easy to find in the Parte Vieja.

Stumbled upon this church by accident. The exterior is not especially inviting and I fully expected to see the usual Baroque interior, however the main altar reredos is not baroque and is certainly a masterpiece. Go if you are at all interested.

16th c. Church, built of the local limestone. It reminds of a fortress. Interesting rosette windows and relief wooden altar and images.
