Stunning example of Romanesque and Gothic church. The sculpted south façade is a wonder itself, deserving some long minutes of observation, decipheration and meditation.

Very well preserved roman church. Look to the portals and its sculptures. Very impressive lantern over the roofs. Admire the coloured sculptures of the old portal.

I've been to more than my fair share of beautiful churches, but this ranks up there with some of the best. The west door, you have to pay to get to it, is absolutely stunning, well worth the 2 or so euros. My long suffering...More

Magnificent structure in a great location, but as soon as we tried to take photos of the magnificent organ and altar, two ladies rushed out and stopped us. No real reason as we were not using flash, and many other churches in Spain have less...More
