Location: in the center of Elciego, 6.5 km away from Laguardia and 20 km from Logroño.
The church of San Andrés, in Elciego, is a huge construction of ashlar masonry from the sixteenth century. It impresses the visitors because of its height and its location on a promontory overlooking the historic town. In the interior it has Gothic, Renaissance and neoclassical parts.
The two towers that rise on each side of the main façade are perhaps the most striking feature of the building. Considerably high, with irregular ground plans and completely different, they are joined by a gallery of seven arches set above a large portico. The right tower is wider than the left one and has a belfry at the top.
Inside the temple, of only one nave, it’s worth highlighting the Baroque altarpiece, from the mid-seventeenth century; the Plateresque choir, with walnut chairs, and the eighteenth century paintings that cover part of the walls.
The church was declared a national monument in 1984.
