Co-cathedral of Santa María de La Redonda

The Co-cathedral of Santa María de la Redonda in Logroño is an architectural and artistic treasure that invites to be explored. Built over an earlier Romanesque church, its “Catholic Monarchs” Gothic style is evident in its three equally tall naves, slender columns and beautiful ribbed vaults. The side chapels, enriched during the 16th and 17th centuries, house treasures such as paintings, religious sculptures and altarpieces of great historical and artistic value.

The magnificent main altarpiece dedicated to Santa María de la Redonda, a Baroque masterpiece erected between 1684 and 1688, stands out. This altarpiece, crowned by a majestic 16th century Crucifixion painted by Michelangelo himself, includes reliefs of the Tree of Jesse and effigies of St. Peter and St. Paul among others. In its attic, a representation of the Eternal Father and various Marian allegories add symbolic depth. In addition, the temple houses an image of the Immaculate Virgin guarding the Eucharistic Presence of the Lord in the Tabernacle, thus completing a set of sacred art of incomparable beauty and spirituality.
