It is an architectural mish mash, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Seems like it, but it is described as Romanesque - the Norman-looking tower is the bell tower.
I love the ornament along the top!
Tom Wilson: An interesting place altogether, Elizabeth.

It looks very functional and fit for purpose, Tom - and has stood the test oftime
Tom Wilson: It certainly has - apparently recent research suggests it was begun as early as 1539.

A bit of everything here Tom but the tower looks vaguely Norman to my eyes
Tom Wilson: It does look Norman - but isn't smile
Quite a nice solid structure Tom!
Tom Wilson: Very much so!

Elle est magnifique avec toutes ces sculptures et son clocher carré.
Tom Wilson: Well worth visiting if you are ever in Northern Spain!
Very handsome and it has a slightly military look to it
Tom Wilson: Mmm - interesting thought. These places were often defensive, in addition to their religious role. However, there is also a castle in Zamora, although I didn't get to see it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_of_Zamora,_Spain
The tower looks almost castle-like Tom.
Tom Wilson: Bill's thought, too: there is a castle, also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_of_Zamora,_Spain

It looks as if more than one religion could have got hold of it. Still, it aged well.
Tom Wilson: Nope - it was built all of a piece smile

You always compose buildings so well. This is terrific.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Bonnie!
A nice sunny day, too...
