Santuario San Ignacio de Loyola

Interesting
Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556), the "Soldier of God", was creator of the Company of Jesus in 1540. Near Azpeitia, by the old manor of the family of Saint Ignacio, the Jesuits built a sanctuary at the end of the 17C and this became an important place of pilgrimage. The house where he was born, a relatively modest medieval manor house, is preserved as a relic in the centre of the vast Baroque complex in which it stands.
