The Church of Saint Mary the Ancient is a 12th-century church in Valladolid, Spain. This impressive and delicate Romanesque construction conserves its attractive tower,amazing architecture in the Old Quater of Valladolid. This is definitely one of the most beautiful buildings in Europe.

Situated just behind Valladolid Cathedral, this pretty little church catches your eye with a nice path and small park area as you walk towards it. Parts of the building date back to the 12th century and the prominent bell tower fits well with the architecture...More
