Photo: Iglesia De La Santa Maria La Coronada Church Medina Sidonia Cadiz Spain

The Iglesia de la Santa Maria la Coronada, a church in the town of Medina Sidonia in the Province of Cadiz in Andalusia, Spain, can be seen in the background beyond the stone archway, and is just a short walk past this point.

The Iglesia de la Santa Maria la Coronda is a church that is located in the town of Medina Sidonia along the Costa de la Luz in the Province of Cadiz, Andalusia, Spain. The name in English means 'the Church of Saint Mary the Crowned' referring to the mother of Jesus Christ, Mary.

Building was started on this church in 1518, at the request of the 6th Duke of Medina, Don Juan Alonso Perez de Guzman. It wasn't finished until the year 1615 so it took a long time to build. It is a traditional Gothic style church and is an excellent example of that kind of architecture. Gothic architecture can be recognized by curved beams and buttresses, and are also described as being quite dark and mysterious in nature. ... continue below the picture...

... These kinds of churches or buildings are used in literature often to describe where sinister characters live for example.

The church is now a cultural monument in Spain and can be visited by anyone traveling through this region if they wish. The view from the top of the bell tower that can be seen from this angle, is gorgeous, and people can see across the whole city. It has all the traditional features of other churches, such as a nave and a chapel, but due to its careful construction and intricate design, it also has something special to offer and feels as if it was just constructed yesterday and not hundreds of years ago.
