Iglesia del Espíritu Santo
Church in Ronda
The Iglesia del Espíritu Santo or Church of the Holy Spirit is a Christian temple in the old city of Ronda, Spain.
The church is built by, and looms over the city gate, Puerta de Almocábar. its contruction was ordered by King Ferdinand and it was the first church to be built after Ronda was retaken in 1485, when the Catholic Monarchs claimed the town.
The church was built on the destroyed foundations of an octagonal tower used by the moors to defend the gate and walls and it took 20 years to build.
At the time it was being built the City was in danger of a counter attack from the moors, so the church was actually built as a defensive structure and has a severe gothic style.
