We visited this after having seen the nearby cathedral, and liked this much better. Not only is this a building on a human scale, but it is clearly a church much visited – and, no doubt, loved – by local people. The columns in the...More

We stumbled upon this house of treasures between the Roman theatre and the cathedral. They were preparing for a religious parade so the statues were dressed quite audibly and the platforms/trolleys were decorated in velvet with silver vases. So sumptuous.

Interesting church. Have a look at Cristo de Medinaceli. There is quite a contrast between the religious art and the architecture of the roof. We were glad to have seen it after walking through some stormy weather. Worth the effort.

The church is behind the Cathedral of Cadiz to the left and up the stairs to the left. The altar was quite different from others I have seen with Christ carrying his cross and Mary holding the shroud with Jesus face on it. Access is...More
