Wonderful Basilica, I went to the Rosary and then to the mass of 7 on Sunday. Mass of the past, with an altar boy, songs of those of a lifetime. Nice and pretty. Ideal environment, both inside (it has a lot of different images and carvings), and the outside, old, with its tower, its bell tower that rings bells very often, its square... worth visiting

It is one of the few examples of Gothic in Asturias. Its construction was commissioned by the city of Llanes, which began in 1240 and lasted until the 14th-15th centuries. Declared as a basilica on April 25, 1973. The temple is built on a basilica plan with three naves and three apses and is covered with a ribbed and stellar vault. On the north wall there is the tomb chapel of Juan Pariente or de la Trinidad, founded in the 14th century. The church has two strongly flared Romanesque facades, a belfry and a 16th-century portico protecting the facade from the south.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
