The Valdorba is the most beautiful region of the interior of Navarre. In the image it appreciates a rich detail of roadway and the church of the Asunción situated in the town of Sansoàin.
Placed between populous cities like Pamplona, Olite and Tafalla and furrowed by highways of the first order, it surprises to the traveler the quietude and wildness of his peoples and the bucolic of his vales and hills. In Valdorba there survive interesting samples of the Romanesque rural one, some of which suppose real surprises. Possibly the reason of this patrimony should to the fact that a secondary route of the Aragonese Milky Way was furrowing these territories during the Middle age.
Some of these churches show the common denominator of having (or, at least, a cimborrio has been projected) with semispherical vault in firstly stretches of the ship, contiguous to the chamber absidal, for having no stretches presbiterial. One usually associates this composition as direct influence of the new church of the castle of Loarre.

You have composed the view so well that the stone path leads us directly to the marvelous architecture! Love it! The tones were managed perfectly with excellent saturation and color contrast results. Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.
All the best,

Hola Ra ,
It seems to be a beautiful springtime day in Navarra !
A great composition (I like this face of your style , too), with superb saturated colors . I like especially the diagonal of the cobled path leading to the church , and the pretty clouds in the sky .

Couldn't you send some of that gorgeous sun over to our parts in Europe, while you bath in that sun we suffer in the snow, rain and fog.
Great view over this church with a good low POV, the eye is wandering up the path, while we have the scent of the blooming rosemary in our nose, towards that great church. Really a wonderful picture indeed.
have a good week
