The Church in Tivissa

The archiepiscopal church of Saint Jaume de Tivissa is quite unusual. It is a majestic building, very interesting from the point of view of architecture, with a mixture of architectural styles such as gothic, renaissance and baroque. But, what makes the church even more interesting is the fact that in the 19th century, due to the lack of space, a new church was built around the old one. That means that over the archivolts of the old temple, some higher ones were built, so that one church is inside the other, which is obvious, even for non-experts.
