  • If you are interested in art, you can't miss the visit to this church. It can be seen, along with some more, through guided tours organised by the tourist office in the Town Hall. The exterior of the building is simple, but once inside you will be amazed with the Benavente Chapel; and just why it is worth going to Medina de Rioseco.

  • As you enter the Church does not call much attention but once you enter the chapel now you understand why it is called the Sistine Chapel of Castile. Worth the guided visit to the chapel along with the Church of Santiago. Beautiful girl!

  • Rectangular Hall with murals in relief. Also as a Ballroom is used. Beautiful views from the windows

  • Very interesting, in the co-exist with neoclassical (majority) Gothic and Baroque, although single Chapel of the Benavente by itself justifies a visit

  • Built at the end of the 15th has a tower of four bodies of Baroque slenderness. Church whose interior houses an impressive Chapel commissioned in the 16th by Álvaro Benavente to the Corral de Villalpando brothers for burial. A Renaissance enclosure reloaded the whole, by something called Sistine Chapel of Castile; Biblical passages about life and death, reliefs, stucco, paintings... All an artistic explosion of color upholstering walls and dome that deserves to be visited. Altarpiece in the apse of Juan de Juni of the Immaculate Concepción.

  • Impressive tempo. Arguably, it's the Cathedral riosecana.
