SANTA EULALIA DE BÓVEDA

Visigoth - 6th Century - Lugo

An almost square building with double vault, built as a heathen temple dedicated to the God of Water and later reconverted into a Christian church of basilical type. It is very interesting for having the first structural horseshoe arch in Spain and for its Barbarian carved decoration outside and Roman type paintings inside.

SANTA LUCIA DEL TRAMPAL

Visigoth - 7th Century - Caceres

This church, undocumented until 1980, has a body of three verry narrow naves separated by pillars now disappeared, a narrow central choir that connects with the crossing and three independent rectangular chevets very similar to those of St. Juan de Baños. It had lateral porticos with monastic compartments, forming a very complex structure.

SANTA MARÍA DE LOS ARCOS

Visigoth - 6th Century - La Rioja

It is a three nave basilic with a complex rectangular chevet, built in the 6th century upon a Roman mausoleum of the old metropolis of Tricio the Great, therefore the chevet is facing west. Fragments of huge Corynthian columns were used, upon which Visigothic horseshoe arches in sinter were added.

SANTA MARIA DE MELQUE

Visigoth - 7th Century - Toledo

It is the most conflictive monument in all Spanish Pre Romanesque since though its structure is clearly that of a cruciform church -even the facades recall those of Montelios- its covering system and, above all, its decoration, lead to the Mozarabic period. There are many reasons from the historical point of view as well as from the architectural one that suggest us to include it in the Visigothic period.

SANTA MARIA DE MIJANGOS (R)

Visigoth - 6th Century - Burgos

Basilic with three naves and three rectangular apses with flat sidewall that also has a semicircular apse on the opposite side, that had a burial. The access door is on the southern side and it had a small portico. Of around 20 m long by 10 m wide, it is built in masonry with some reutilized material. There are doubts regarding its dating although a slab indicated its Catholic consecration around the year 601.

SANTA MARÍA DE TARRASA

Visigoth - 7th Century - Barcelona

Among the episcopal ensemble of three churches in Tarrasa, this one would have been the cathedral dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Built in the 7th century upon a previous church, it was a three nave basilic with an apse. Only the apse, the central nave and the first stretch of the lateral walls have been preserved and they now form a sort of crossing.

SANTA MARÍA DE TARRASA

Visigoth - 7th Century -

SANTAS CÉNTOLA Y ELENA

Visigoth - 7th Century - Burgos

Small hermitage located in Valdelateja, near Siero, formed by a square plan chevet and a small wider nave with wooden cover, separated by an access arch, with a not very pronounced horseshoe shape, upon a line of ashlars with two small niches on the sides. The chevet is covered with a barrel vault, also horseshoe shaped and has a narrow window that ends in a monolitic arch of the same type.

TESORO DE GUARRAZAR

Visigoth - 7th Century - Toledo

El tesoro de Guarrazar es un conjunto de piezas de orfebrería visigoda del siglo VII compuesto por coronas votivas, cruces, colgantes y fragmentos sueltos, de oro, gemas y vidrios. Su finalidad era de donación regia a una iglesia, en este caso en el contexto del yacimiento de Guarrazar, en Guadamur, a 11 km de Toledo.

TESORO DE TORREDONJIMENO

Visigoth - 7th Century - Jaén

El conjunto de Torredonjimeno, descubierto en 1926 en el paraje de la Majada de Garañón (Torredonjimeno, Jaén), está considerado como un conjunto gemelo al de Guarrazar, fechable a finales del siglo VII, y compuesto por fragmentos de cruces de diferentes tipos, restos de coronas, colgantes y vajilla.

VILLA FORTUNATUS (R)

Visigoth - 5th Century - Zaragoza

As part of a larger site, two Roman villas and a Paleochristian basilica are superimposed, the oldest known in Aragon, which was modified and reused in the sixth century Visigoth. It has three naves separated by arcades and a single semicircular apse interiorly, but with a flat front, with an exterior baptistery in front of the head. Magnificent mosaics of the Roman villas and different Visigothic elements of the 6th century are preserved, such as a chancel and a magnificent chrismon.

 

VILLA ROMANA DE CARRANQUE

Visigoth - Siglo IV - Toledo

Located within a Late Roman villa, it belonged to the Prefect of the East in times of Theodosius and it is possibly the first Christian church known in Spain. It has a large lobby, an uncovered atrium fringed with two covered galleries supported upon columns, a cruciform church inscribed in a square and a four lobed mausoleum attached.

VILLA ROMANA DE LA COCOSA

Visigoth - 5th Century - Badajoz

The remnants of this construction were found among those within a Roman villa, with a rectangular plan with two opposed apses, horseshoe shaped, one that contained a tomb, at the north, another one at the south and a third one, much smaller on the eastern wall with unknown purpose, as a continuation of a small corridor between the nave and the northern apse.

VILLA ROMANA LA OLMEDA

Visigoth - Siglo IV - Palencia

La Villa Romana La Olmeda fue descubierta en 1968 por don Javier Cortés, mientras labraba sus tierras. Se trata de una mansión del Bajo Imperio (siglo IV) compuesta por un patio central en torno al cual se articulan las distintas dependencias. Destaca de entre todas ellas el salón principal (oecus) el cuál posee los mejores mosaicos del conjunto; uno que representa el episodio de Hércules en Skyros y bajo este, una cacería, siendo ambos uno de los mejores ejemplos mundiales de mosaicos romanos.

YACIMIENTO DE GUARRAZAR

Visigoth - 7th Century - Toledo

El yacimiento arqueológico de Guarrazar, situado en la localidad de Guadamur, provincia de Toledo, alberga los restos de un complejo monumental de época visigoda, compuesto por una basílica, dependencias monacales y una residencia palatina. En este enclave se halló el denominado Tesoro de Guarrazar, compuesto por cruces y coronas votivas del siglo VII, seguramente ofrendadas en la basílica como exvoto real.
