Zesty Zaragoza: The Exterior of San Gil Abad…

Today, I take you once more to the Casco Histórico (Old Quarter), to a church by the name of Iglesia de San Gil Abad

Apparently, this place was built as a Romanesque structure after the Reconquest of Zaragoza in 1118…However, it eventually was demolished (the city’s growing population necessitated a larger place of worship) and rebuilt in the mudéjar (Moorish-lite) style in the latter half of the 14th century…Eventually, there were more architectual reforms in the 18th century, lending the temple a distinct Baroque flair, as well…

Well, I didn’t actually get to get photos of the INTERIOR (by the time the Mass was over, it had closed), but, in my honest opinion, it isn’t as nice inside as it is on the outside–however, there’s always the possibility of a future post!!…

So, tell me, folks–would you visit this Iglesia???…
