OUR CHURCHS AND CHAPELS

 

Church of Nuestra Señora de la Barca – Navia

 

Finished in 1895 and built on the foundations of a Gothic Medieval church of the 14th Century. The church overlooks the Market Place, nowadays known as “El Pañolito”. “Nuestra Señora de la Barca” was designed by architect Luis Bellido González in neo-Gothic style. It has three naves, the central one endowed with two side chapels. Outside we can see a square tower, flanked by a wide transept. The church is presided by a neo-Gothic altarpiece, which was polychromed and gilded in 1954. The Gothic style church pulpit is remarkable for its bas relief work. The valuable golden and silver shrine and altarpiece are consecrated to the Immaculate Virgin. Two paintings by Alvaro Delgado, adoptive son of the village, represent Christ and The Holy Face.

Church of Stª Marina de Puerto de Vega

Recently declared a historic site of interest, this church, known as “The Baroque Cathedral in Rural Style” was built between 1730 - 1749 by José González Muñiz and Jose Menéndez Camina, at the expense of the local   sailors- and traders guild. It bears two outer slate spire towers. The central nave has an entrance door with a segmental arch, a balcony, a clock and a pediment.  Inside there is a wide vaulted nave with two side-chapels below the transept gallery. The main altarpiece, made in Baroque style by sculptor José Bernardo de la Meana, is considered the church´s masterpiece. It was restored in 1996-97. Outstanding artistic expressions are also the carved pulpit, the 16th Century organ restored by Gerald Grenzing, the carving of Saint Blas, dating from the 15th Century and the holy chalice, donated by Juan Pérez Villamil. There is also a plaque landmarking the site where mortal remains of the illustrated writer Jovellanos were provisionally buried for three years.

Church of Santiago de Villapedre

Built in the 18th Century (1707), it is consecrated to the Apostle Santiago. We can trace back the church history by reading the engraved inscription on a pillar: the central nave with its side aisles, arches and pillars appear to have been donated by the local patron family Trelles Navia y Villamil, joined at patronage by the Fernández de Cuetos, families who thus have remained closely bound to this church forever. As a sign for their support, both families' coats of arms have received prominent locations in the building. In 1996 the church underwent a comprehensive restauration. At both sides of the tower there is an inner arcade covered with a tracery vault. Most noteworthy artwork includes: an image of St. James Pilgrim, two images of Santiago Matamoros, the altar of St. Anna and St. Joachim among other artistic pieces.
