Descripción

In Calle Real, the main street of Castrojeriz through which pilgrims enter the village, the church of Santo Domingo waits for a better time. Built in the fifteenth century, in a gothic style, it has been modified several times through the centuries. In the eighteenth century, the Mudejar coffered ceiling was changed by stone vaults.

The outside of the church is quite simple except for the main entrance, built in the Renaissance in the sixteenth century. It’s formed by a round arch with two pilasters that end in a pediment where a sculpture of the Virgin with the child is kept in a niche.

Inside the church, a beautiful neoclassic altarpiece is guarded. It was carved in the second part of the eighteenth century and has several sculptures of different ages and styles.
