An impressing building

One building that has impressed me is the monastery of Santa María de Valdedios. It is located in the Asturian council of Villaviciosa, and belongs to the Catholic Parish of Puelles.

I visited it last year during a stage of Santiago’s Pilgrimage which I did with other students from the School of Languages.

What strikes me most is how people in those days were capable of carving such big stones and assemble them in order to build enormous vaults and arches’ supported by high plasters with beautiful figures carved in the capitals. From my point of view, it must be God who helped them to do these wonders.
