  • I'll never understand why you can not get photos without flash, especially as in this case when the input is not cheap and the temple is desacralizado. I am Restorer and had wanted to reflect some details in a photo. The brochure sold it separately and the visit to the catacombs is irrelevant

  • Great solid built
  • Zabalburu family, who resided in the nearby Mena Palace, ceded the land and paid for part of the work of this neo-Gothic church, designed in 1890 by the architect Luis de Landecho, who devised a temple inspired by the Gothic and built cathedrals with sandstone of Mount Oiz. For this project, he obtained the gold medal at the exhibition of fine arts of Madrid of the same year. This church was built before the increase of population that took place in Bilbao at the end of century XIX, on the occasion of industrial development, reason why is called the "fifth parish". At the beginning of century XXI has been rehabilitated by Rafael Purroy. Include its interior stained glass windows (its design and construction were responsible to a craft of Munich) and the rose window of the façade.
