    Museo de Arte Religioso de Atienza

    Iglesia de San Gil

    On this church from the XII century - formerly Iglesia de San Gil - is now the museum of religious art.
    The museum, which was inaugerated in 1991, has a entry fee of something around 2 euro(?), is relatively small. But beside the religious art there is also an unexpected rich number of fossils and other findings from the region from older times.
    So it ended up good, worth the visit.

    Ayuntamiento

    Ayuntamiento

    The sign on the door says "Juzgado de Paz" (Justice of the Peace), but the building has all the resemblance of a Ayuntamiento. Perhaps a combined service?

    Iglesia de la Trinidad

    From Iglesia de Santa Maria to Iglesia de la Trinidad there is a row of stone pillars. It had some significance, which I -sorrow to say- did not write down.

    Iglesia de Santa Mar��a

    The church Santa Maria has the burial ground outside the church on the "city side". This view was taken from the Castillo Roquero. Man, we are high up!

    Plaza San Gil

    At Plaza San Gil, just near the Iglesia San Gil, there is this water source. If it has served as drinking water, for washing cloths or just for the horses, I do not know.

    Supports at Plaza del trigo

    Also in this village you can see supporting pillars. This row is encountered at Plaza de trigo and gives an example how the old and the new culture have to live together.

    Arco de la Virgen

    One of the portals where you can pass through the city wall. The city wall is not complete, most of the city is lying outside.
    This portal is situated just "above" the museum of San Gil.
