Built in the 18th century on the site of a visigoth shrine in a grotto next to the river duero. It has an octagonal layout with an interesting lantern and a large bell cote. The shrine was designed by Pedro de Ajin and built by Juan de Izaguirre.

Inside the church are the remains of San Saturio, who was born into a noble family in Soria on the 8th of may 493. From his family he inherited a large sum that he distributed amongst the most needy before retiring to live as an anchorite. He was canonised the 31st of august 1743 by Pope Benedict XIV.

The road to the shrine was one of Machado's favourite routes.
