  • Its rose window and doors make this church very valuable and beautiful.

    One of the places you shouldn't miss when you come to the province of Cáceres is the Church of San Pedro Ad Víncula, in Casatejada, which was designated a Property of Cultural Interest in 1965.

    At first its construction began in the Romanesque style but in the end it just comprises a single nave and main chapel, both of which are Gothic and were built between the late 15th and early 16th century. You are sure to be captivated by the beautiful Plateresque rose window, which lights up the choir stalls beautifully.

    The tower rises up to the right of the chevet, and comprises five parts decorated with splayed windows and stone coats of arms.

    The church's most interesting features, however, are its two doors: the one on the Epistle side, with archivolts and a semicircular arch; and the one on the Gospel side, which is a Gothic door.
