Iglesia de Santa María de la Mesa

Zahara de la Sierra, AL, Spain
11 Kudos
After enjoying the panoramic view of the area from the Toree del Homenaje, we leisurely walked down the romantic cobbled street. We could see how white it is for this whitewashed town. Then, suddenly we spotted a beautiful spire of a church perfectly topped with Spanish/Moorish roof which matches quite well with cobbled street. The church is town's prime church, Iglesia de Santa María de la Mesa. This church was built in the 18th century, so not as old as other famous places of worship in the Iberian Peninsula. The church's front facade shows off ornate decoration but the sides are as plain as it can be. But, to me, the best part of the church is its bell tower and unique roofs that you can see in some of the old medieval buildings in Istanbul at the time of Byzantine Empire and modified by Osman Turks.
