This is a wonder of rural Extremadura. This is the kind of thing you expect to see in Rome or Florence, but not in the middle of the dusty mountains of Extremadura. This chapel built in the late 1300s is a masterpiece done by several anonymous artists over the years, mostly from the 1400s to the 1600s with the entry way painted in the 1800s. Paintings not retouched, just cleaned to remove candle smoke. Likely built over the remains of a Roman Temple, though no excavations have been done, it is so worth driving out of the way to see. I almost hate to comment on it because I don't want more tourists to ruin its appeal. Yet, it seems a shame not to mention it for those who have a chance to see it.
