Loyola

Visiting the birthplace of the great St. Ignatius of Loyola. This was deep in Basque country, Gipuzkoa Province, Northern Spain.

Argent,

Welcome back and wonderful photos of magnificent churches erected to the Glory of the Almighty!

Did any of these beautiful churches offer the Gregorian Rite or Mozarabic Rite of Holy Mass?
And if so were you able to assist?
God bless.
