Striking Romanesque altarpieces by Ambrosio de Bengoechea and Juan de Iriarte.
and a 1868 French organ by Cavaille-Coll.
Period stained glass windows and, on one side of the façade, the sculpture of the “Pietà” by the artist Jorge Oteiza.
It was closed most times we walked past. When we finally managed to get in we took a 20 minute walkabout...
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.
However the inside of the church has some pleasant and beautiful surprises. There are some amazing stained glass windows in this church. Very surprising how nice it is considering how the outside appears.
