Santa María de la Antigua Church
Santa María de la Antigua Church is a Romanesque church of the twelfth century, but finished in Gothic style. We owe this church to the wife of the founder of the city, Elvira Sanchez. It's our little Notre Dame.
From XII century retains the tower and a portico. The tower with a height close to 50 m topped with an arrow that makes it the tallest Romanesque bell tower in Spain. The rest of the building is Gothic and neo-Gothic, as it was probably rebuilt in the XIV century under the reign of Alfonso XI of Castile, with notable influences from the Cathedral of Santa María de Burgos. After later additions in different styles, it was intensively restored and rebuilt in the first half of the XX century.
