Not sure why, but all other pilgrims were stopping to go into this church, so I also stopped. Impressive ...but it is still just another church.

Well worth a visit. Looks more like a fortress than a church. Very impressive main porch with fine sculptures above. Simple but interesting rose window. Some nicely executed capitals. Noble and royal tombs and if doing the Camino an interesting retablo about the life of St…
Santa Maria la Blanca is an imposing Templar Church on the camino frances. The raised platform and few windows make it look more like a fort than a church. It's worth 15 minutes inside.
