Iglesia de San Nicolás de Bari

San Juan de Ortega Spain

Roman Catholic

The Romanesque church was built by the famous architect San Juan de Ortega, also a disciple of Santo Domingo de la Calzada. It is designed so that at both the fall and the spring equinox the sun's rays fall on the capital for the scene of the Annunciation. San Juan de Ortega is on the ancient pilgrimage route of the Camino de Santiago, the Way of St. James.
