This is one of the memorable landmarks on a pilgrimage across Spain. We didn't go inside, but it was a nice place to sit on a bench in the courtyard and relax.

This church is almost a thousand years old, and is an intact example of an 11th. c. Romanesque church. Arches, barrel vaults and friezes are all typichal of the period. The fact that this church predates almost all the wonderful churches on the Camino de Santiago makes it a must-see for pilgrims and other tourists alike. One pays a couple... More
