It’s an interesting church set in the middle of nowhere. Restoration helps give a better appreciation of what it used to be like. The information centre puts the place into context, but all information is in Spanish, as you might imagine. Free to visit.

We were the only people at the church after being allowed to enter after speaking a friendly man, administrating, collecting data from travellers, speaking only Spanish. He asked us where we were from, and then welcomed us and invited us visit the site. It was peaceful, amazingly well preserved and the views from the church were beautiful.

A few miles out of the tiny village of Alcuéscar sits the early visigothic church of Santa Lucia del Trampal. Built in the 8th century, on top of an even older pagan temple, this is probably the oldest surviving church in Spain. To give a sense of age, it was abandoned by 850, hundreds of years before most basilicas were even started. The site is in the middle of nowhere, and yet there is a manned interpretation centre complete with video. Entrance is free. Although a small building, you get a real sense of enormous age and calm as you walk around the site.
