Romanesque art in Soria
Church of San Martin
An impeccably restored porticoed church dating back to the mid 12th century. Particularly worthy of note is the single nave and the magnificent wooden roof and a pointed barrel vault.
The pointed triumphal arch is supported by two strikingly simple and roughly decorated capitals: one featuring two four-footed animals facing each other; and the other showing an animal attacking a man, aided by a second. The south section boasts a magnificent porticoed gallery in ashlar stone that contrasts with the building’s masonry. This church has many outstanding elements that can only be discovered during a tour of the temple. This is a unique site that is well worth visiting.
