Church of Santa María la Real

The Church of Santa María la Real, located in Azcoitia, Guipúzcoa, is an architectural jewel with a rich history dating back to the 16th century. Built in Basque Renaissance style, its structure stands out for the eight Tuscan columns that support the roof, reaching a height of 14 meters. In addition to its impressive architecture, the church houses a valuable artistic heritage that includes the last organ made by the renowned Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, inaugurated in 1898.

The collection of works of art inside, ranging from altarpieces such as the one designed by the Jesuit Francisco Bautista de Medina, to paintings from the 16th to the 19th century, contributes to its cultural and spiritual importance. Restoration in 1992 highlighted its splendor, making it a point of reference that reflects the devotion and participation of the Azcoitia community.
