Churches and Chapels
Church of Santiago
A sample of transition Romanesque, with a single nave covered by a barrel vault. The most interesting feature is the south front, the so-called 'Puerta del Perdón' (Gate of Forgiveness).
The Iglesia de Santiago dates from 1186, when the bishop of Astorga, Don Fernando, obtained a bull from the Pope allowing him to build a church.
