Iglesia de San Vicente
Church in San Sebastián
Iglesia de San Vicente or Church of St Vincent, is an early 16th century church, located in the Parte Vieja of San Sebastián, Spain. It was built in the Basque Gothic style by quarry Miguel de Santa Celay and Juan de Urrutia.
It is thought to be the oldest one in the city as its origins date to the 12th century, but it was rebuilt in its current Gothic form in the early 1500s. The building has a rectangular plan and one nave and two aisles. Its stained-glass rose windows and pointed arches draw the eye. Also impressive is the 19th-century French organ and the presbytery’s altarpiece, created by the sculptor Ambrosio de Bengoechea.
The church plays a very important role in the San Sebastián Musical Fortnight.
