We all stood in awe of this 11th century Romanesque church.
The building was classified a historical monument in 1973.
The exterior architecture of the church is perfectly proportioned.
Inside one can see magnificent sculptures composed of foliage and scrolls; a fresco with the theme of the Holy Scriptures.
This fresco has been covered several times with plaster and updated a few years ago.
It represents Christ in majesty seated on the throne surrounded by the tetramorph, symbol of the four evangelists.
In this church is also a black virgin made of wood and dressed in a cape. According to tradition it dates back to the time of the crusades. She carries on her chest the baby Jesus.
