Hi, how's it going? I wait your answer may be "fine" :)

The purpose of this thread is show the charming and magnificent (christian) churches around the world.
(Remember: only photos from flickr)

And, of course: neither religious fight nor discussions like "what's the better religion", or something like that.

VISIGOTHIC CHURCH OF SANTA LUCÍA DEL TRAMPAL, CÁCERES, EXTREMADURA, SPAIN
The church of Santa Lucía del Trampal is a disputed dating temple (between the 7th and 9th centuries) located in the Spanish municipality of Alcuéscar, in the province of Cáceres. It is a singular temple with Visigothic architectural characteristics and possible later Mozarabic influence, which orders its head with three rectangular chapels open to a transept. It stands out for being the only building from the Visigothic period that is still standing in the southern half of the Iberian peninsula

SAN JUAN DE BUSA CHURCH, HUESCA, ARAGON, SPAIN
The church of San Juan de Busa is located in the Serrablo region, in the municipality of Biescas

Probably, it was a parish church of a disappeared medieval town. Built by Ramón Guillén between 1060 and 1070, it is in the Mozarabic Romanesque style, like the rest of the Serrablo churches.

It does not have a bell tower and the apse is not finished. Its only rectangular nave is covered by a wooden gable roof.

In the center of the south-facing wall, the main doorway opens. Made up of two degrading archivolts, the outer one has its voussoirs decorated by an inscription in kufic characters that says ['la ilaha illa Allah'], which in Arabic means ['there is no (other) god than Allah].
