In the Navarrese town of Estella, we find one of the most important religious buildings of this community, the church of San Miguel. This is considered of Cultural Interest as well as being part of the historical heritage of Spain, something that makes thousands of tourists visit it every year. Most of these visitors are pilgrims coming from the French Way, who go to the Cathedral of Santiago.
Located in the center of the town of Estella, the first documents relating to this church are recorded in the year 1145. According to the experts, it could be much older, since there are archaeological remains in its interior from between 1187 and 1196. These remains are kept together with many others of different architectural styles, which are examples of the different works that the church underwent over time.
While the historical value of the church of San Miguel de Estella is very remarkable, its architectural structure becomes the center of attention of all the people who visit the city. The first thing that we can emphasize of them is that it is located on a mote, in addition to by its great size in comparison with the rest of buildings that we can find in this city.
Although there are many important elements that we can find both inside and outside of this company, only some are considered the most representative of the place. In the interior of the church of San Miguel de Estella we can find the altarpiece of Santa Elena, of an unparalleled beauty, while in its exterior the portico stands out, where different representations are included.
