Churches and Chapels
Church of San Juan Ante Portam Latinam
Dated in the 12th century, with a single nave and small dimensions, it is in a state of abandonment, with no cover. The lowered arch that separates the nave from the header stands out as well as the southern portal, formerly sheltered by a portico. It is semicircular with a single archivolt adorned with a frieze of rosettes.
Above it stands an impost of plant motifs and feline heads whose invoice shows a relationship with the workshop that participated in the Almenara de Tormes church.
Higher quality and another more experienced hand demonstrate the three modillions on it, one representing a head between barrels, another showing two pelicans facing each other drinking from the source of life, and an elephant head. The eaves are supported by corbels with animal figures.
