The Church of Santiago was built outside the enclosure walled of the medieval city. In the place there was a chapel with the same name built in times of the Spanish reconquest. The current church was built in late 15th and early 16th century.

Outstanding architecture and gardens

Beautiful gothic gem in Jerez. Wonderful art and architecture. Just a small 2 euro fee because it is being run as a museum. Don’t miss!

One of the iconic churches of Jerez, marking one of the two "barrios" (neighborhood) of Jerez with strong flamenco traditions. Compared to the Iglesia de San Miguel (in the other barrio with flamenco roots), the exterior/facade of this church is more well preserved. You can still see the whole gargoyles for example. There is a bar right across the street where you can have tapas and sherry while admiring the view of the church. These are two of the three churches and neighborhoods to visit while in Jerez. The other one being the Cathedral in the "casco historico" (the old historic center). Big Smile! #freeelectrons.family

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
