  • Built in the sixteenth century, in late Gothic style with plateresque elements. We had the occasion to celebrate the pilgrim's Mass in the Choir. Church with very interesting and quality altarpieces.

  • Splendid building whose interior attracts attention for its cylindrical columns. The exterior beauty is enhanced by the simplicity of the lines, and is increased by being surrounded by a large landscaped space.

  • Collegiate Church of Santa Maria. Surprise his choir carved in wood and the austere decoration

  • It is a building that took two hundred and fifty years to build so we will find an evolution of different artistic styles. Above all, it looks very baroque, for example the choir. The vaults are made with a stone typical of the area; they're very tall. The columns also attract attention as they are wider than usual. The daily Mass is held in the choir, as there are very few attendees from all over the village and so it is more intimate and also, in winter, they are warmer. The banks are heated.
