    The waters that saved Recceswinth are (at least today) little recommended for people with kidney disease. No need to drink water to heal in this place of some bad current as excess activity.

    I don't want to alarm anyone, but I want to use this space to call attention to the use that is being given to this wonder of our history. To make the visit I realized that each column had a few brands that seemed to be caused by some type of candle or something. Asked the girl making the guided visit (fantastically, by the way) said that those marks had been made to stick flowers in one of the many weddings that are held there. And not only that, also that people is dedicated, not infrequently, to throw firecrackers in front of the Church. To me, personally find it me crazy to the treatment that is being given to this monument, tratandolo as if out "anything". I hope that someone put a little common sense to take care of this temple, enriching, and that way, the heritage of this country.

    In addition to its historical and artistic importance, it is a beautiful building, so simple and bare beauty which is wonderful. There are few monuments that convey both.

  • Allegedly the oldest remaining church in Spain. Interesting visit for 2€ which includes the 15 min tour.
  • A great place in its simplicity and tranquillity of its surroundings. If visits Palencia don't go to enjoy the oldest church in Spain. I do it with my students and all leave happy to this special site
