Collegiate Church Of Santillana Del Mar, Santillana Del Mar Reviews - Write a Review
Colegiata de Santa juliana, probablemente uno de los mejores exponentes del Románico en Cantabria. La construcción actual data del Siglo XII pero esta hecha a partir de añadidos y reformas de la Ermita primigenia que se cree data del año 870. Datos aparte es el objetivo final de un paseo por Santillana del mar y se disfruta mucho sentarse un rato en sus alrededores.
Magnifica colegiata romanica
