St. Martin de Porres

As I've said, St. Martin de Porres has one of the best towers in Toledo.
The basic design is very good.
I'm impressed by the stonework around the entrance, and by the Art Deco influenced reliefs of the Evangelists.

Unfortunately, the full scale sculpture; statues of the Sacred Heart, St. Anne with Our Lady, and a Crucifixion group at the top, are about what you'd expect to find on a cut-rate tombstone.
They're awful. This is the one glaring note on an otherwise excellent building.
