I wonder about the sense of this categorty because most of the churches in Spain are built with stones except of some brick and a very few wooden churches... --Ceterum censeo capitalismum esse delendam (talk) 00:09, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn´t see tht this talk page before. Well, most of the historical churches in Spain are built in stone. Others, as you say, are of brick or wood, or (many) of a mixture of brick, stone and cement. Leaving apart that the category Stone buildings [1] is conceived for buildings whose aparent main material is stone (which would leave apart those covered by cement or painted), there also exist plenty of modern (20th and 21th century) churches, whose main material is reinforced concrete, steel, glass or brick, with no stone at all. Anyway the category will be very populated, indeed, and other subcategories as granite churches in Spain, sandstone churches in Spain or Stone churches in Andalusia can be created, as it is done with other populated categories.
