A Coruña Romanesque, sketches.


La Colegiata de Santa María del Campo.

Iglesia de Santiago.


Sketches, from the medieval quarter of A Coruña, of the romanesque architecture which dates from the 12th century.  

The Church of Santiago is the oldest and most preserved of the buildings depicted here, as I was informed by the priest whilst sketching it, whilst 'Santa María del Campo' has various renovations including an extension to the main Portal and later neo-romanesque additions.


The Convent of Santa Barbara was built later, but has pieces of Romanesque architecture cemented into it's walls and facade from earlier buildings.
