Walking through the cloisters before entering the church was very restful. The church was obviously still used and well loved.The windows (made of thin stone or marble) were splendid.

It was a monastery and a church, and it remains intact. The importance of this one is that there is a lot of tombs made out of stone, probably belonging to royal families and/or very influencing people in town.

We lived in Santillana during the 1980's and this Catholic church was still active then. They have the relics of Saint Juliana on display and the front of the altarpiece is pure Mexican silverwork.

Nice and rare, but not too impressive imo. Try to neatthe crowd when it opens or reopens after the siesta, because the (relative) solitude adds much to the atmosphere. Young kids enter free.

Very simple romanic church. The cloister is lovely, and there are lots of interesting pieces of sculpture there.

on the last morning of our fishing trip in the "Picos" we stopped by this wonderful old collegiate church - not to be missed as it is the resting place of Ste. Juliana - quiet reflection is in order and the cloister is an oasis...More
