  • We arrived about ten minutes before the opening (10 hours) and we decided to turn around and take some pictures of this beautiful complex, mainly comprised of three buildings: the fifteenth-century church square, the adjacent round with its Tower in the middle of the 12th century and the neighbouring cloister (of which a part was intended for pilgrims ' hospital). It is without a doubt the most significant among the monuments. The late-Romanesque style church, dates from the mid 15th century and presents a beautiful terracotta frieze, taken around the Windows. Inside, a marble bas-relief of the fourteenth century was adapted to the altar. The Church leads to the baptistery, which for its octagonal shape is called "La Rotonda". Probably built on the remains of a small Roman temple, the baptistery is the oldest monument in the city. Inside, the dome rests on a space of eight columns and capitals. Not to be missed! Worth the trip!
