Parroquia Santa Marina de Aguas Santas, Cordoba

4.3
Santa Marina is a church in Córdoba, Spain. It is one of the so-called "Fernandinean Churches", edificated in the city after Ferdinand III of Castile conquered it from the Moors in the 13th century. The structure combines proto-Gothic, Mudéjar and, to a lesser degree, late-Romanesque elements.
The church, one of the oldest of the Fernandinean group, was built in the second half of the 13th century where previously a 7th-century Visigothic church and a Moorish mosque had existed. No trace of them remains today.
On 23 June 1880 the church suffered a fire, which required a restoration lasting two years. Other renovations were carried out in the 19th and 20th centuries, during which the medieval appearance of the building was restored, by removing the Baroque additions introduced after the damage from the 1680 and 1755 earthquakes.
The church has been a national monument since 1931.
The church has a rectangular, or basilica, plan, divided into a nave and two aisles, the nave being far higher than the latter. The aisles are separated from the nave by large pointed arches.
The facade is characterized by four large, asymmetrical buttresses, ending with pinnacles, and corresponding to the interior separation between nave and aisles. Also present are a main central rose window, smaller circular windows, and alfizes over the ogival arch of the main portal. The facade corresponding to the left aisle features a secondary portal, surmounted by a triangular arch.

  • The parish of Santa Marina is one of the monuments not to be missed when visiting Cordoba. It stands out for its Romanesque cover and the sobriety of its architectural style. It is located in the neighborhood of the bullfighters which is accessed by a square where you can contemplate a colorful monument to Manolete.

  • Top class church! And even better now with the new inner illumination system. Great community and very welcoming priests.
  • One of the most beautiful and enchanting churches in Cordoba. The impressive buttresses and the unusual structure of the building are the things you should go for and visit this church. It's well preserved and its location is quite amazing as you suddenly see it coming out after waking in some narrow streets. It's majestic!
  • One of the seven catholic churches rebuild by king Fernando III, in the XIII-th century. After the famous battle of Las Navas de Tolosa, in 1212, a great part of Andalusia was reconquerrd by the Christians. An important project of reconstruction/transformation of churches began.
  • I would recommend a trip over Cordoba's churches provided with tickets to Mezquita.
  • Awesome place!
