Built at the end of the 11th century dedicated to San Baudelio, the shrine was built in the Mozarab style. This shrine is the jewel in the crown of pre-romanesque sorian architecture. Its exterior is very simple, only the horseshoe arch door stands out.

All the walls were covered with in tempera, Romanesque and Mozarab paintings, some of which are still there and others, having been torn down, are in museums in Boston and the Prado.

It has two rectangular sections made from rubble; the entrance gate has a double horseshoe arch in the archivolts and jambs. In the back part of the apse is a medieval rock necropolis containing more than twenty tombs with crudely cut anthropomorphic shapes, some of which are decorated as if they were pantheons.
