San Vicente Mártir of Abando Church

Iglesia San Vicente Martir

San Vicente church is an example of sixteenth century Basque Gothic architecture, also known as “Late Gothic”.

This church was probably built on the site of a ninth century hermitage. Its façade is Renaissance and inside is buried the writer and chronicler of the city Antonio de Trueba.

A statue dedicated to Trueba presides over the Albia Gardens, and the last verses of the writer can be read on his tombstone in the Church: “They say that the swan sings when it dies, and now my pain is so mortal that it is perhaps the swan, my throat”.
