Amazing example of Spanish romanesque
Jul 2017 • Couples
This is one great experience a few minutes away from San Vicente de Sonsierra. There following a small paved deviation from the road and isolated among fields is this jewel of architecture. It can be visited inside by appointment but to appreciate form the outside alone is a great experience in the solitude of the open setting. No crowds and camera totting hordes. Just you, art and history.

Lovely views

Lovely to walk around and see the views. None of the buildings were open. Wish some of the info panels were in English, as our Spanish was not good enough to understand all the info.

Well worth a visit for the beautiful views, though the church was shut. The weather was a bit windy but still very pleasant.
