  • The Church Sta Maria la Mayor is a good example of Romanesque-Gothic building, since the southern wall of the primitive chapel was demolished to be incorporated into the lateral nave of the future parish. The Central Altarpiece is a marvel, with elements of Romanesque, Gothic and Plateresque, more than 100 figures and perfectly cleaned in Sto Domingo in 2012. There Are Two other side altarpieces, especially the Hispano-French walnut, by the Beaugrand brothers. The guided, enthusiastic and pertinent visit by Ricardo Aransay is not to be missed. The whole is worth it.

  • Undoubtedly, the church of Santa Maria is the most important artistic and cultural monument of that beautiful Riojan village that is Ezcaray. It is a large church, with an altarpiece worthy of a cathedral. Every day there is a guided tour at 5pm. It is attended by pious priests who also attend to the confessional before masses. The pity is that for the robberies that took place in the past, it is only open what is strictly necessary for worship. It's a shame. In the summer, with as much tourism from families with children as there is in Ezcaray, a solution should be considered so that it could be open more hours.
