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

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.

Magnificent surroundings the visits of the church with established days

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
