Church of San Andrés (Elciego)

This impressive church, built in stone in the 16th century, presents the traditional orientation to the East. In the same building, several architectural styles are to be seen, from the gothic to the neoclassical and the renaissance. 

The most Gothic parts are the nearest to the towers. It's the only remaining part of the Gothic building over which the current building was erected. Picturesque columns and archs. In the other part of the church we can see the sacristy, in neoclassical style. In the middle part we can see the stylistic evolution in the building. In the 'crucero' part we can see a Renaissance style. 

The church has also a baroque and renaissance-style altarpiece. The 18th-century organ, of classical style, is still in use and used for concerts.
