A fortified church
Aug 2018 • Couples
Santa Maria la Mayor is a rather large fortified building, that dates back to the 12th century. It was built until the end of the 16th century. Its walls are of a reddish stone typical of the region. It is a church-fortification edifice with noteworthy cylindrical towers at its corners. On the outside the row of balconies is supported on Romanesque corbels. Inside there is a single nave church with an ogive vault and medallions. The oldest part of the building is Romanesque and is made up of the chapel of the Immaculate Concepción and the tower.

The church is located in the middle of the beautiful village of Ezcaray. Just facing the Echauren Relais & Chateau hotel. This is a very authentic and pleasant village that is defacto the first tourist village of La Rioja". The old town has preserved its traditional architecture, landscape, and traditions of the medieval time.
