Between the Sea Gate and the market place, you will find this building. I loved the architecture! The building is really pretty big and intricately carved. Well worth the free wander by.

A Romanesque church that stands out in town .It is over 900 years old and not much left of the original interior but the exterior is impressive and when lit up at night, is rather aesthetically extraordinary.
