Attraction details
Reviewed May 16, 2018 via mobile

Smallish church, externally cleaned up but a lot of the pillars inside still have the original paint work. The stained glass is beautiful and clearly depicts their stories.

The exterior of this church is harmonious and beautiful. The facade has wonderful sculpture depicting many religious stories. The interior is amazing with the painted columns - most churches of this age lost this sort of painting long ago.
The square surrounding has a market and a number of cafes and restaurants.

A classic among all the Romanesque churches they have in that region ! obviously you'd better see it when the sun sets !
Don't miss inside the statue of Virgin Mary ,holding a key ,there is an interesting story behind that !

Very pretty, relatively small church with a hugely impressive facade which depicts many scenes from the bible. Pretty cool and a couple of cafes surrounding the square are a good place to have a pit stop.
