“atmospheric”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

On a school trip we were exploring the village in the evening so unfortunately the church was not open. Suddenly the heavens opened and the town was inundated with torrential rain of biblical proportions so we all sheltered for about 45 minutes in the cloistered area. it was very atmospheric and I am sad we never had the time to properly explore it. the lighting at night is great!

“Very beautiful Church”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The countryside is peppered with lots of beautiful churches and this was no exception! You need to approach it from the other side of town, as you cant approach it from the hotel road directly.

“Peaceful place”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Costing only a few Euros to enter, this is a wonderful spot and well worth a visit. The cloisters are delightful and nature has been allowed to have her way, with pillars covered in ivy. Only negative - displays of this important church are only provided in Spanish.
