A Stop in Santa Fe

Before you think that Lars and I crossed the ocean, there is also a Santa Fe in the province of Granada. By the way, the Santa Fe in New Mexico was named after this one.

When we arrived, we could park our car at the main plaza of the town. First things first, before we do some exploring, it was time for a cold beer and a tapa.

The historic centre of Santa Fe is well kept and is quite picturesque. Look around and you can still see the 4 town gates.

The Church of Our Lady of the Incarnation was erected in the 18th century and is built in the neoclassic style. Here are some exterior shots.

Churches in Spain are usually closed to the public. Lars and I were incredibly lucky that we could photograph this one just a couple of minutes before church service started. We were even given a small tour.

One last look before leaving again…

Such a charming town deserves a second visit! We noticed some tapas bars before we left and we really really have to try those.
