This article aims to be a brief reflection on the role of law in regard to the development of the right to religious freedom in a specific aspect: the right to establish places of worship. For this, the author refers to several international legal experiences as well as the cases of Spain and Europe. In this latter case, he argues his thesis based on the sentence by the European Human Rights Court in the “Vergos versus Greece” case, on a city planning decision that could affect freedom of religion.
