The exterior of the Sanctuary of Loyola
The Sanctuary of Loyola was built in the 17th century along the river Urola in the town of Azpeitia, in the Basque part of Spain, where St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order, was born in 1491. It was completed following the “ultra Baroque” style typical of late 17th-century Spain, featuring elaborate and dramatic stucco decorations.
