The church of San Cebrian or San Cipriano has its origins in the XI century; of Romanesque style, although from that time are only preserved the chevet of three bodies and the northern wall. It was reconstructed in the XII, XIV and XVIII. In the reconstruction of the XIV century a funeral chapel was added on the north side and the tower on the south side. Initially had basilica floor, but was replaced by a single nave while retaining the characteristic triple chevet of the Romanesque of Zamora.

The church has a single nave, with three later chapels, with windows to the façade, framed by semicircular arches supported by columns with capitals decorated with vegetable forms, highlighting inside the engraved capitals, especially those of the main chapel, which represent the Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise, and the Adoration of the Magi. The chapel on the left is further protected by a fence dating from the XII century. The main entrance is next to the tower, and consists of three semicircular archivolts. And the whole eave is decorated with checkered trim and human figures.
