Churches and Chapels
Church of San Silvestre
Known as 'The Armuña Catthedral' because of its monumental size, it was built upon a former structure of which a 14th-century tower has been preserved.
Single-nave structure with a transept. Six Baroque altarpieces dating from the second half of the 17th century, plus a richly ornate Plateresque one. Of particular note is the 'Cristo de la Largueza', a 14th-century sculpture.
Also interesting is the arch of the tribune, with an ashlars balustrade that was partially destroyed to hold the organ, brought in from the Salamanca cathedral in exchange for the monumental bell known as 'María de la O'.
