Churches and Chapels
Major Church of the Asuncion de Nuestra Señora
Large 12th-century church, with thick walls and naves of equal height. It contains a remarkable series of paintings and sculptures, as well as the grid of the presbytery.
Most of the church was built in the 12th century, but the original Romanesque apses were replaced with Gothic ones in the 14th century. The Baroque altarpiece adapts to the polygonal shape of the apse and is decorated with scenes of the life of Mary. It is reminiscent of the school of Gregorio Fernádez.
