Oh how the Spanish love their churches, cathedrals, monasteries and religious edificios. This one dates back to 1124, and is mainly gothic in style. It totally dominates the town, being disproportionately large in relation to the towns population. Worth a look, but I wouldn’t make...More

Spätromanisch, gotisch, Renaissance-Plateresk und sogar Barock, alles ist hier vermischt. Nach langem Suchen finden wir den Doncel in einer Seitenkapelle. In der Sakristei verschwindet gerade eine Gruppe mit einem grimmigen Führer, der darüber wacht, dass wir uns nicht anschliessen. Hätte er uns nicht Sigüenza is...More

Huge building considering the size of the town and well worth a visit. Busy with school children when we were there so not exactly quiet! The bullet holes really made you reflect on the buildings fascinating past.
