Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Basque Country / Province of Vizcaya / Bilbao / Iglesia de San Nicolas
Admire the striking blend of different architectural styles at Iglesia de San Nicolas, the city's oldest church and a Spanish property of cultural interest. It was likely built in the 12th century, as evidenced by its Moorish architectural features. It also showcases a 15th-century apse, and it underwent further renovations in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. The church is most recognizable by its 12th-century tower, built with Herrerian-style spire tops. Its 18th-century brick Baroque facade is strikingly different from the rest of the building.

Beautiful it's hard not to stop at a cathedral when you visit European cities. To see that these places are still active places of worship is even more exciting because I feel like in America something like this would be torn down to build something more modern.
