Well worth visiting. If you can climb the spiral staircase to the top, its well worth it - even on a hot August day the breeze was blowing cool up there. Think there were 2 other couples whilst we were there so very quiet and...More

Spanish church architecture palls a bit, but the interior is good. The highlight is climbing the bell tower for great views past the askew bells that look if they've stopped mid peal. 2.50 € is a fair price, and unlike the castle it's clear when...More

A seriously large church for a small town, but as the bishops of Cadiz relocated here when the Portuguese and British were sacking Cadiz it is probably understandable. Some interesting architectural anomalies as well as a side alter dedicated to the Spanish Inquisition! You can...More

Really enjoyed wandering around this lovely church. It overlooks a plaza in beautiful Medina Sidonia. Interior and exterior both worth the trip. Check opening hours. Restaurants close by to enjoy views. See it even if churches are not really your thing.

Interesting church with Moorish origins, typical of most churches in the part of Spain. Very ornate high altar

When you step inside this building it is simply breathtaking. Even has some benches used in the Spanish Inquisition, which of course we never expected!!!

We visited this amazing church on a short visit to Medina-Sidonia. It is spectacular inside with beautiful and extraordinary artworks and the climb up to the top of the tower is a definite 'must'. However! It is a bit of a climb to the top...More

Medina-Sedonia is very much off the beaten track and well worth a visit if you are traveling by car. The church is fascinating. It does not have the crowds you will find in the big city churches but it is just as magestic. Two things...More
