A Pretty Picture for Sunday - A Romanesque Church Tower

While I was in Spain last month I enjoyed taking photographs of bells.  This is the tower of the church at Ainsa.  According to Spanish Wikipedia, building started in the late 11th century, finished in the mid 12th century, and it was consecrated in 1181.

An additional delight was spotting the house martins' nests in the stonework of the arched gallery above the bells.


  1. Many people like Gothic architecture, but I prefer Romanesque. Maybe because they are so much older. They are intriguing to me. Thanks for the photo.

    1. Glad you liked it, Mary Ellen. Plenty more coming...
