We were attracted by the tall bell tower and started walking towards it. I anticipated something really interesting, but at the end was not too impressed by this church: a mix of styles not living in harmony. Plus, there was ongoing loud construction on the...More

. Whenever you are admiring a panoramic view of Antequera, you can almost certainly see the tower of the San Sebastian church. It is the most ornate - and I think the tallest - of the towers of the 28, yes 28, churches in the...More

The Church of San Sebastian is very easy to find because it is located in one of the main plazas of the town. I enjoy seeing the Angelote weathervane and I was able to take a good photo of it. I also specially like the...More
