|-Spitsbergen -South Tyrol Dolomites|
country in Europe has most churches and monasteries worth seeing? Some
hundreds at least. France, where the gothic religious architecture
started? Or Germany with so many local interesting churches, and where
baroque got famous? Or Italy, where christian architecture started
anyway? Or may be Spain with so many famous and very impressive churches
and old romanesque or even pre-romanesque churches?
Churches and monasteries in Spain
A new page with only churches and monasteries of Spain, just for a
better overal view of them. But I realise, that our love for Spain -
especially in fall and late winter, also for the mild climate and
beautiful landscapes - will bring us many new albums with the
cultural beauty of Spain. We'll see. Also on Tenerife and La Palma there
are interesting churches and some cathedrals.
Fall 2012 - our
autumn-trip through the Spanish Pyrenees. What a fine combination
of nature and culture, i.c. the beautiful and interesting old Romanesque
churches, i.a. in the 'Vall d'Aran' and the 'Vall de Boi'.Some more than 1000 years old! And with fine frescoes
too!! See 20 new albums left up.
Costa Blanca - at last I have a complete review of churches on the Costa Blanca. After many years of traveling around there in late winter\early spring I made 11 albums with many churches. Enjoy them as we did making the photos.
February - March
2014. Trip through Andalucia, Costa del Sol. Result?
September 2017 - we made a trip to the North-Spain regions of Navarra, Cantabria, Asturia and Castilia-Leon. So much to see. Communal churches and more the impressive cathedrals of Santo Domingo de la Calzada, Burgos in 10 albums (!!), Leon, Astorga and Oviedo. More than 1.000 photos in 40 albums to enjoy. Better than garbish on your smartphone....
November-December 2017 - The Spanish Canary Island Fuerteventura has also to offer some interresting churches. And not only impressive landscapec
March 2018 - a visit to the church basilica of Santa Maria in Elche (Elx) in the Costa Blanca; and the 'Collegian' San Patricio of Lorca more to the southwest. A very worthwile visit of 2 important churches.
