Collegiate Church of Santillana del Mar, Santillana del Mar

4.6
The largest Romanesque structure on the Cantabrian coast, Collegiate Church of Santillana del Mar has allegorical columns with carvings that depict the epic struggle between good and evil. The cloister's humble size is offset by these detailed works, which are chiseled on the top of columns in the form of animals and humans. Surrounding the cloister is a town with cobblestone streets; its cafes and shops serve the many guests of the sacred monastery grounds. Outside the walls, stumble across several sarcophagi that are the final resting places of priests and nobility.

  • There are so many beautiful religious buildings in Spain that the cloister - especially in part occupied by a huge nursery rather ugly - is far from being exceptional. We would appreciate a companion document to "read" those of the capitals that are figurative... and a little less rude welcome! The collegiate church, imposing, has neither the charm of some buildings more modest but touching

  • Collegiate Church of Santa juliana, probably one of the best examples of Romanesque art in Cantabria. The current building dates back to the 12th century, but this made additions and reforms of the primitive chapel that is believed dates back to the year 870. Data apart is the ultimate goal of a stroll in Santillana del mar and enjoys much sit awhile in its surroundings.
