Collegiate church of St. Juliana de Santillana del Mar (Cantabria)
Built between the 12th and 13th century, this monastic complex dedicated to St. Juliana, a martyr from what is now Turkey, displays some of the typical features of Romanesque style: a three-nave plant with semicircular apse and a series of capitals decorated with a variety of floral motifs. The main facade features a fresco of Christ Pantocrator, a typical image of Byzantine iconography, and as well as a depiction of St. Juliana herself.
