Spain is one of the countries where there is more Catholic population. For a long time, they have excelled in church building to worship their beliefs. These temples can be visited by tourists and, in fact, are one of the great tourist attractions that this country has, especially by believers like us. Like anywhere, entering a church means wearing appropriate clothing that respects the religion and the place we are visiting, and as a commandment says: “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God”.
As we are going to be traveling for a long time and maybe the space in the car is not our greatest advantage, we can wear a jacket, jeans and sports shoes, which work any occasion. In addition, we must choose the best travel backpack to be able to save everything and to resist.
Here are 4 churches that, that for me, you should visit if you are in Spain:
1. Church of Santa Maria del Mar: This church is located in a street full of cafes, ice cream shops, shops, among others. That’s why it’s a church that stands out. It took about 50 years to be built by the inhabitants of Ribera, another great example of a believing population. It was the village church since it was they who were in charge of its construction. It is full of lots of light and surely visit it must be on your list of what to do in Spain.
2. Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela: it is the cathedral that receives the pilgrims of the Way of Santiago. In addition, it is one of the most visited temples. It represents a goal for many people, since there are many beliefs about absorbing evils when you get there, once the journey is over.
3. Church of São Tomé: it is a very small church, that keeps a very important painting: “The funeral of Count Ordaz”. It was built in the fourteenth century. It is open from 10:00 to 18:00 hours without interruption. For me it is quite curious, as it combines 2 wonderful things: religion and art.
4. Church of San Agustín: is near the sea in Cadiz. You can take photos as it is not prohibited, perfect for keeping good memories of the moments you visited our creator. Its construction ended in 1617 and at that time was used as a convent. On Saturdays and Sundays, two masses are held, one at 10 and another at 12 o’clock. List the hours in case you want to attend one.
