  • It is very surprising that in a town of little more than 200 inhabitants you can find this magnificent temple fruit of the important task that founded the Knights Templar in this place. I think that it is a privilege for this village located on the Camino de Santiago. Despite the small size of the town, this church makes is look many pilgrims in the surrounding area. At the time we were, almost all pilgrims were retired foreigners. The Church of Santa María la Blanca is one of the most important medieval temples which can be seen on the road in the community of Castilla y León. It is pure transition between Romanesque and Gothic. When we arrived and despite the fact that had many pilgrims, the doors were closed and we could not access the inside of the temple. However, the exterior of the building is both worthwhile and its interior. Only the size of the temple is already spectacular. Undoubtedly the most advisable outside is the façade of the southern gate. This blanket is under a high portico of targeted and vaulted with ribbed arches. It is a pleasure to stop front porch and enjoy the extraordinary façade of entrance to the Church. It is one of the most recommended churches which can be visited by doing the Camino de Santiago route. Therefore, I would recommend to not miss it. Greetings to all travelers.

  • In the Camino de Santiago, we visited many churches. This is amazing, first by the village where it is located, and second for its history. Monument Templar of the 12th century with a beautiful portico. It is worth diverting to visit him.

  • The monumental Church rises close to the road and moved you already from far away the strength of his architecture. Affected by the earthquake of Lisbon (1775?) was rehabilitated and shows an unusual external power, but a delicate atmosphere inside. Stop along the way very comforting.
