Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Regla, Pájara


Plaza de Nuestra Señora de Regla
Pájara
Fuerteventura
Spain

A small church that was built between 1687 and 1711. There are many different motifs decorating the glamorous stone doorway and the Virgin that stands at the altar was brought to the island, apparently by a wealthy emigrant. However, the origins of the doorway are unknown, it is not made of local stone and it may have come from Mexico. Two carved figures of snakes eating their own tails are located above the doors.
