“Extraordinary rose window”

Colegiata de Santa Maria la Mayor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2017

The church is magnificent, especially at sunset. You can make outstanding photos. Be sure to pay attention to the window with a rose, another masterpiece.
Nearby is an interesting Plaza del Pan with a lot of benches, covered with ceramic paintings. The most comfortable place in Talavera de la Reina.

The biggest thrill for a literary adventurer is that half of the body of the author of Celestina is buried in the wall in the interior. The Church itself is lovely and yes the rose window is something to look at. Just across is the Plaza del Pan which is an attractive plaza with plenty of benches to sit and observe life in that little square of Talavera de la Reina.

Be aware that it isn't usually possible for tourists to see inside the church in the afternoon. (At any rate, it wash't in May 2014. To check, maybe ring the tourist office - 925826322.) If all you want to see is the extraordinary rose window, though, it doesn't matter, because the window's only visible from outside.

My wife and I recently visited this church and the young priest was very simpatico and shows us around and explained everything. The architecture of the church is quite interesting and the cloister was quite big. There was a very important sculpture of Christ called Ecce Homo and the artist was the famous Pedro de Mena. The name of the young priest was Ignacio, and he was very educated. He made our visit very memorable!
