Church of St. Mary Royal of Sangüesa (Navarra)
The complex of St. Mary was built in 1052, when the town of Sanguesa became an important stop on the pilgrimage to Santiago by King García Sánchez III of Navarre. Originally, It featured a bridge built in Romanesque style that could connect the town with the opposite side of the Aragon river, allowing for easier passage for pilgrims. The southern gate is one of the best expressions of medieval architecture from the Navarra region, featuring a lower door with barred vaults and a upper door with double arches. The church was designated as a National Monument in 1889.
