Iglesia de Santa María de los Ángeles Aug 01, 2011
the most beautiful church i had ever seen in my travels and the most unique one! construction in gothic began in the 13th century and finished on the 14th and finally the finishing touches on the 15th century.

the floor is made of hard wood that creaks everytime someone walks onto it which makes it different from other churches which the floor was constructed either in stone or in marble.

it is VERY DARK insideand little light comes in, that why it is very difficult to take pictures inside withouth a tripod and it is not allowed to use camera flash inside.

the most noticing part of the church is a statue of a saint/angel that sits lonely on the nave, instead of the usual sword it holds a paddle which is very curious - i guess it represents the saint/angel of the fishermen in the fishing town of san vicente de la barquera.

the church is one of the prime example of cantabrian gothic architecture - very different from the rest of the gothic structures in spain which have high spires. the church is also the burial site of the high inquisitor D. Antonio del Corro constructed in marble rennaisance style.

the church is located in the old district of san vicente de la barquera which is surrounded by a fotress and been named as the door of the pilgrims because the camino santiago passes this way. not only that, the church is on the highest ground of the old town and from their - offers an amazing view of the whole fishing town of san vicente de la barquera and the cantabrian sea.
