The beautiful churches of the Sabugo neighborhood of Avilés... The imposing church of Santo Tomás de Canterbury or "new church of Sabugo" is a neo-Gothic style temple inaugurated in 1903. The two forty-seven meter high spire towers stand on it. Very pretty inside and out!

Beautiful cathedral.

Neo-Gothic style. Inaugurated in 1903. The two 47-meter needle towers and the portal stand out. Inside, don't miss the altarpieces and the organ, located in the choir. Free access.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
