Photographer's Note

This is the south side of the church. In the distance the sierra rises above the Oxolatan River. That river provided the majority of the materials used in the construction of the complex - small, roughly round-shaped stones, carried one by one from the river's bed. Here, the wall could tell a remarkable story - different colours and patches. Two larger bells sit just inside the main entrance to the nave of the church - these serve more practical purposes. As John Donne has written, "never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee".
