“Can tourists really go in ?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

There's a notice on the door asking tourists not to go in during services, but to come back later, after the service. In mid-May 2014, though, the church only seemed to be open when there was a service on. Otherwise the door was closed.

“Great Romanesque Architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Count Martin Fernandez built the San Martin Church in the 12th century and the Romanesque architecture of this church is one of the best in Spain. The main retable was created by the famous architect and artist Alberto de Churriguera in 1731. The floor plan is rectangular, with three naves and three apses. The columns have capitals decorated with acanthus leaves, plain leaves, and allegorical figures. The Romanesque south portal is decorated with archivolts. One niche shows a relief of St. Martin sharing his tunic with a pauper. One of the impressive tombs belongs to Pedro de Santiesteban and the choir is also noteworthy.
