After walking several miles on our camino, we were weary and seeking spiritual refreshening. This church provided such sanctuary. It was a welcoming place to pray and reflect. The medieval architecture and artwork were simplistic by Spanish standards yet lovely. How can you say anything bad about a church after all. If you have time take a moment and walk... 更多
The very quaint Iglesia de San Martin is a restored 11th century church in Fromista. Its clean simple lines and relatively austere interior are a far cry from the big catedrals of the neighbouring cities. It had a calm peacefulness about it - well worth a visit, even if you're not religious.
This is a lovely, ancient church in the small town of Fromista. It is the finest example of Romanesque in Castille, and dates from 1066. The capitals of the columns are beautifully crafted. They form a narrative of biblical stories. We enjoyed this church forits small, intimate size, and knowing that people have prayed and attended Mass here for nearly... 更多

The streets were quiet even after siesta time was over except for an elderly pair of gentlemen out for a stroll. What made Fromista such a popular stop in such a barren... 更多

It's a small Romanesque church, built towards the end of the eleventh century. It fell into disrepair but was renovated at the turn of the twentieth century. The restoration was well done... 更多
An unprepossessing little village, but what a treasure it houses! No longer a parish church but an ancient monument, San Martin gives us what we believe to be a faithful indication of what a Romanesque church must have been like, when that period was in its prime. Remarkably, it has escaped the "improvements" that later generations have carried out on... 更多
