There is a medieval suburb called "barrio de San Lorenzo", completely empty of tourists, with a nice square and romanesque church.

The roofs in #41/5 and 9...
#43/2 is an enchanting pic!

Your region seems to be the Eldorado for Medieval and Renaissance fans, buho!

This wonderful thread is underrated and would deserve more visitors and likers -
I have to say that again.

Last year 75 million tourists came to Spain... most of them looking for sun, beaches and drink. Don't tell anybody in the inner part of the country there is a hidden medieval treasure, too much tourism would ruin the magic!

Another unknown church, where tourists don't arrive, is Santos Justo y Pastor church. Unknown because it's almost always closed... It's a 12th century romanesque church, with wall paintings.

And San Millán church, possibly the most important romanesque church in the city. A great complete 12th century church, with two porches and four apses.
