  • recommended to visit this temple through a guided tour, as we did, and we enjoyed of great explanations of the Guide, much of the temple itself and the beautiful inner cloister. This visit is very much worth

  • It is the mother church of Estella. It is high and is accessed by a grand staircase (there are also lift). In the past it was a church-fortress. Its construction was initiated in Romanesque architecture. Home, cloister and apse are this time but its final period. The dome is oven. There are documents that speak of it as a parish in 1174. The cover is from the 13th century. The cover, flare, and with slightly pointed arches comprises 8 archivolts. In them and in the capitals we can see an eminently vegetal decoration but on the top of the wall jambs are mythological animals. Access arch is polylobate, Arabic influence. The interior is from several eras ranging from the 12th to the 17TH. Interesting the baroque chapel of St. Andrew. Two carvings of Christ cross, one Romanesque and the other Gothic, of great interest. But the best is the cloister of which only two of the sides are preserved. It is the work of two different beds. The capitals, grouped by subject in a restoration, resting on double columns.

  • Beautiful church built at the edge of the Camino de Santiago by the end of century XII in this medieval town of Estella. The most beautiful of the Romanesque architecture in Navarre, impressive cloister. The whole is surprising and re-fuel. A comfortable elevator rises to the height of the temple and can be avoided by the stairway that has no waste; very good design.
