Ceiling of the Basilica de San Vicente, Avila

Avila, Spain

"The Basilica de los Santos Hermanos Mártires, Vicente, Sabina y Cristeta, best known as Basilica de San Vicente, is a church in Ávila, Spain. It is one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in the country.

The church is built using sandstone, extracted in area of the nearby La Colilla. It is attributed to Giral Fruchal, the architect who introduced the Gothic style in Spain from France.
San Vicente is on the Latin cross plan, with a nave and two aisles ending in semicircular apses, with a large transept, cyborium, atrium and a crypt."
