Built on the foundations of the original castle and later a mosque, this church is a fine example of Andalusian Gothic architecture. Inside there is an enormous 15m high and exquisite retablo, that typically depicts scenes from the life of Christ. There is also a...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.

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!!!
