There's something about Spanish churches with their splendour and wealth of ornamentation, and San Pedro is no exception. There are some amazing altar backgrounds and every corner you turn shows a new and grand sight.

Although very weathered on the outside, you can see many of the detailed masonry work on the front and side of the church! We marvelled at how the builders moved such massive boulders up the hill to build this church.

what a stunning church San Pedro is. Every chapel is magnificent and the gold leaf decoration is everywhere. This is a church not to be missed on a visit to Arcos

Because Spain has so many spectacular churches, this was is not that impressive in comparison. However, while in Arcos, it is well worth the visit.

We stopped by when walking around Arcos. The decoration in the church is really nice and well taken care about. In addition to all the wonderfully crafted altars and paintings you can also see the remains of two saints exposed in two of the altars.
