Muy guapa, buen románico. Habría que conservarla mejor.

Beautiful Romanesque monument, which is worth visiting, it is precious and its stones count, what has been lived for many centuries, I hope it was more pampered and cared for.

Pre-Romanesque church in a small village, it is very beautiful but in very bad condition, the roof needs to be repaired and the stone cleaned, or it will end up like the house next door
Miguel Martínez Trullén (4 years ago)
Yet another of those charming examples of Asturian Romanesque architecture that unite the wonder of its enclave, a secluded valley very close to San Salvador de Valdediós, with the trace of architectural harmony that reaches the bottom of the spirit.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
