Iglesia de San Nicolás de Bari


by pixel2013

"Neo-Classical church"

Originally built in Moorish style in the 11th century, the tower collapsed in the 12th century and the church was completely rebuilt in a Neo-Classical style in 1762. The famous Virgen de Alfileritos de Toledo occupies a niche in the back wall. A hole in the glass which protects the painting allows the unmarried women of Toledo to make their wishes come true. They push a pin with a colored head (yellow for blonde hair, black for brown), through the hole to chose the hair color of their future spouse.
