Very impressive church, although it was completely rebuilt, which somehow explains its good condition.

Whilst I have no religion I could appreciate this church from the outside. Very unusual construction by the plaza, worth walking all the way around the outside to see it from all angles.

It really is worth detouring (not far) from the Camino route to visit this absolute gem of Romanesque architecture and paying the small entrance fee. It is largely untouched architecturally and the interior is plain and contemplative which is a pleasant change from the Gothic and Baroque cathedrals and churches elsewhere.

Frómista is a small town not far from the motorway that justly deserves a detour. One reason for that is San Martin church, if you are into art and history. This is one of the finest examples of Romanesque art. Having a basilical plant and three naves, its beauty and simplicity are really enticing. Currently, the church is basically a small exempt building in the middle of town, but what we can see today is quite different from what the temple looked one century ago or so, as it underwent a controversial restoration finished in the early years of the XXth century. Apparently, the restoration works went a bit too far in some aspects, in some people´s opinion, but it also demolished some added elements that were endangering seriously the stability of all the building. You have to pay a ticket to visit it, but ít´s cheap -3 euros- and the temple is really beautiful and proportioned.

Wonderful classic - a must see for pilgrims. (And don’t miss the nearby gourmet restaurant, Hostería de los Palmeros. A bit expensive, but an experience too amazing to miss.)
