Churches and Chapels
Church of Santa Elena
Located outside the walls of the town, it is a clear example of Romanesque from the repopulation period, in the time of Fernando II de León.
It is a modest, rural Romanesque building that has a nave and a semicircular main chapel preceded by a straight priestly section. Its construction in granite masonry, a very abundant material in the surroundings, as well as its few reform works, have allowed its good conservation.
It has two entrances, one on the west gable, crowned by a simple belfry, and the other on the north, crowned by an overhang supported by corbels carved with plant motifs, human and animal heads.
