Founded in the 7th century by San Fructuoso, it remained active until the Muslim invasion. It was restored later by San Genadio. The reconstruction dates from the 12th to the 13th centuries. Nowadays it comprises many styles: some remaining Pre-Romanesque capitals, a Romanesque tower, the remains of the cloister and the church facade from the 18th century. Visigothic and Mozarabic slate spire. Main facade from the 18th century.
