Museum of religious art in the church of San Salvador
It is said that in the 12th century there was a Templar monastery on this spot, dedicated to Salvador. The crosses and beams have stone inscriptions from the 17th century under the name of ‘de los caballeros’. In 1929 it was declared a Listed National Monument.
Was built in the beginning of the 13th century, with three naves with apse and chapels, its construction was conditioned by the existence of a tower on the site.
The main arch of the middle nave was rebuilt in stone in the 16th century, with its fonts and limestone masonry which was replaced between 1676 and 1684 by pointed ones. The inside of the church was covered with paintings which gave light and colour to the church to such an extent that it was called "el pintado" (the painted one) in the 14th century.
In the Romanesque-Mudejar church of San Salvador de los Caballeros is the Museum of Sacred Art of Toro. The hosted pieces show the sculptural richness of the city of Toro in the Middle Ages. Besides, it has the collection of Gonzalez Allende Foundation, which has contributed to the restoration of some carvings and murals of the temple.
