The church of Santa María la Real de Sangüesa, declared a National Monument in 1889, has a magnificent façade and authentic stone altarpiece, and is considered one of the top Romanesque works in Spain. There is a representation of the Last Judgment inside.
Of slender line and medium-size proportions, it was built between the 12th and 14th centuries in a style transitioning from Romanesque to Gothic. It has 3 naves, a transept, an octagonal tower and many other surprises in its interior: such as the main altarpiece, in the Plateresque style and a rich Gothic processional monstrance. After crossing the iron bridge over the river Aragón, Santa María la Real de Sangüesa welcomes you to the town in the western central area of Navarre, close to its border with Aragón.
