Beautiful Facade
Aug 2011
The Church of Nuestra Señora de las Angustias is located at Calle de las Angustias, 6. This church was built in 1597 thanks to the generosity of Martin Sanchez de Aranzamendi, a rich merchant of the city. The architect was Juan de Nates. Juan de Nates was inspired by Italian churches when he designed this church and he introduced classical architecture in the northern part of Spain. The church has a beautiful façade and was a prototype of the architecture of the Counter Reformation. It has two parts, all made of stone. The lower part has the form of a triumphal arch. The upper part has a pediment on top of a lintel. This was finished in 1604. The pediment has the coat of arms of Martin Sanchez. The facade has sculptures that were created by Francisco de Rincon in 1605. The lower part has statues of St. Paul, St. Peter and a Pieta. On the upper part there is a sculpture of the Annunciation. There is one nave covered by a vault and there are side chapels. There is a crossing with a cupola that has a lantern. One of the side chapels is bigger than the others and was constructed in the beginning of the 18th century. The shape is octagonal and it has a cupola with a lantern. The main altarpiece has a sculpture of the Annunciation. There is a beautiful statue of the Virgen de las Angustias, done by the artist Juan de Juni. Another notable work of art is the Cristo de los Carboneros, a work by the artist Francisco de Rincon. Other important sculptures are statues of St. John and Mary Magdalene, created by Gregorio Fernandez.

This is a beautiful church from the 16th century. The altar is just beautiful with sculptures and paintings that represent the seven virtues: charity, fortitude, prudence, diligence... The statue of Our Lady of the Anguish is very moving, it is a polychrome sculpture
