Photographer's Note

Church of St. Mary of the Assumption (Iglesia de Santa Maria de la Asuncion) is one of the tourist attractions in Castro Urdiales. The Gothic style Catholic church was built in the 13th century on a high cliff during the reign of King Alfonso VIII of Castile.

Work on Iglesia de Santa Maria de la Asuncion continued through to the 15th century. The result is a basilica with three naves, high arches and buttresses.
Nowadays there are held occasional concerts
