Santa María la Real Church in Sangüesa
Iglesia de Santa María la Real de Sangüesa
The temple of Sangüesa.
This is one of the most representative works of the Navarre Romanesque.
It is built on the site of a Romanesque temple with three bodies from which the apses are preserved. Another Cistercian-style church was added later. The most outstanding part is the main front, with great iconographic wealth, especially the statues-columns, and there are scenes from the Old and New Testaments in the reliefs. The inside of the temple houses a Gothic image of Santa María de Rocamador and the Main Renaissance reredos, by Jorge de Flandes, as well as a Processional Monstrance from the 14th century.
