Church in Mestas de Com, Cangas de Onis. It could be better preserved.

A poorly preserved ruin. I wish I was better to visit her.

The church of San Pedro en Con, located between Llano de Con and Mestas de Con, council of Cangas de Onís (Asturias, Spain), is a popular Romanesque church, with a single nave and square head. The head, today opened by two semi-circular arches with imposts, was attached to some missing lateral compartments. The roof is made of wood in the nave and the groin vault in the apse. As notable decorative elements, the Romanesque façades of the western and southern facades and the triumphal arch on attached columns are preserved. The entire area of ​​the fence is decorated with wall paintings from the 18th century, constituting one of the few examples of popular architecture with pictorial decoration from before the 19th century.

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.
