I had been told how beautiful this church was but sadly I was very disappointed when I got there to discover it is not generally open. It's only possible to go inside as part of a tour which runs at certain times. I only had very limited time in Laguardia as I was on my way to the ferry at... More

The little town of Laguardia has nice picturesque streets. At the end of the village along the wall you will find the beautiful Iglesia de Santa María de los Reyes which has a breathtaking 14th century Gothic doorway. It has beautiful sculptures of the disciples and many other motifs. The church itself is also worth visiting but the gothic doors... More

At the far end of this little town you will find the absolutely amazing church......even if you have seen hundreds of old European churches, you need to see this one. I'm not an architect, nor a builder, but, I can appreciate amazing structures. The portico is breath-taking".......see the rest for yourself.....

Found at the northern part of town. There are gothic and Romanesque styles. Tours can be arranged through the local Tourist Office. Worth a visit.

There are guided tours through this church and a presentation in Spanish, that highlights the outer portion which houses some spectacular carvings. There are English notes so you can follow along. Once over, you can go inside the main church which is also impressive given the size of the town where it sits. Definitely worth the $2 euro entrance fee.... More

This is a different kind of church. I often hear grumbles from my husband about seeing another church, but this one we both agreed was different. The small tour does a light show (sounds touristy, but it's not) that is truly special. The carvings, art and gold in this church is spectacular. Definitely memorable to see.

We wandered through and were in awe of the intricate detail and beauty of this small cathedral! We also enjoyed ambling through this walled city of small shops and eateries!

One of the highlights of Laguardia has to be this amazing church and its interior portal doors. Don't go to Laguardia and not go to the church.
