Puebla de San Vicente or Ventas de Becerril, as it is also called this village, has one of the most notable and pure temples of the Romanesque north, though it is unknown in reality.

It has a beautiful semicircular apse with three large windows, a very short presbytery and a sober nave divided into two portions and covered with a pointed barrel vault, while the façade is opened at the foot, something quite unusual in Romanesque architecture of the area. The most part of the building dates from the first half of the XII century, although the nave was domed at the end of that century.
