I love visiting churches and this is very appealing. Great clock tower when approaching from narrow street. Some superb stained glass windows.

For those who like catholic churches, Spain is a great place to visit with many characterful and sometimes unusual churches around. The San Savador in lovely Getaria is renowned for its angled floor descending away from the altar, perhaps because it was build on a...More

I've been to many churches but once never seen one like this. Church is fairly small but still quite pretty in my eyes. The floor is on an angle leading up to the altar. Very unusual design. It's worth visiting if your in the area.

There are lots of things about this church that make it rather unusual. It's not wildly decorative, just unusual. If you're in Getaria, go and have a look. Also, check out the archaeological excavations nearby.

As churches go, this one is just ok. It's not an overly large or ornate church. Some of the statues look extermely life like. It only takes a few minutes to visit.

You have to see this church to believe it. It was built crooked. Just go. And be sure to walk around the outside.

Have at least half an hour for this very unusual church. Really regret that I hadn't enough time to be there and understand more about the architecture of this building. Definitely to be there on my next visit to Basque country.

The 14th Century Gothic church of San Salvador in the centre of Getaria is worth a visit - I can't remember seeing another church with a sloping floor before. It's trapezoidal in layout and has three naves, naturally with the central nave higher than the...More

Iglesia de San Salvador is the most important church in the tiny town called Getaria. It is located in the old town, at the end of the Nagusia Kalea (main street in English). It has a curiosity: it is possible walk below the church in...More

Getaria is a fishing harbour and village with loads of historical interest and charm. The narrow medieval streets and alleys are a window into a time long gone. This church is the heart of this area. The ornate interior of he church doesn't look like...More
