During our visit, we couldn't help but notice these larger-than-life, very modern pieces lie inside the courtyard. Our curiousity led us in search of the "why" and "what". As it turns out, this is a year-long exposition of a famous sculptor's work (Eduardo Chillida Belzunce)...More

For me the alter is the highlight of this church. Having said that the windows and interior make it a must see place.
