Located in the centre of the town, this cathedral-style church is stunning outside and in.

Well worth dropping in to see the religious statues, decor, etc.

This is a lovely church architecturally which seems happily situated in the middle of crossroads. It is also a thriving church with regular masses. Inside is a special place for quiet contemplation, reflection and prayer. There are many admirable physical features inside this church.

Church wise there are much better and beautiful churches in Spain. Worth seeing but nothing spectacular.

This is much like a northern Spanish or French gothic church from the 19c and one of the few I have seen dedicated to this saint. There are several interesting statues and paintings in this church.

We called into the port of Aviles whilst on a cruise and this magnificent Church towered the skyline so we decided to visit it inside . Inside it was beautiful and the ornate wood work carvings and pictures do the outside justice, Its amazing that we in our country seem to have less churches to this standard.
