  • This church is one of the temples of the village where you can see the transition from Gothic to Renaissance. The big surprise is in the left aisle where we meet a Funeral Chapel: of BENAVENTE, commissioned by don Álvaro Benavente, banker Riosecano, in the middle of century XVI. The guide will explain you thoroughly details all the Chapel, as well as some anecdotes concerning their State of conservation. Within it, as well as working with stucco of the brothers of the poultry, Villalpando (Zamora), will fascinate you the altarpiece of the French Juan de Juni, which tells the story of the Virgin in five reliefs. No to belittle the gate of the chapel of the same century. The most amazing is that it only took 10 years to make it. After seeing it, you will understand the words of Eugenio D'ors: who described her "as the Spanish art Sistine Chapel". Highlights on the other hand in the Church among other works, the organ, the choir which was transferred entirely (gate and seats and facistorio) from the monastery of San Francisco and already anecdotally the skin of the alligator on the front door. For your visit is recommended to take a ticket which gives you the joint visit of the Church of Santiago, the Mueo of Holy week, the Museum of San Francisco and this temple; the same cost is €7 / person, children do not pay; The main reason is because in this church and that of Santiago a guide; explains them There are many details that can not be missed, the duration is 1 hour approximately (both Churches).

  • is the Chapel, an impressive work of art in the Church. The Chapel is also called the Sistine Chapel of Castile. It's a pity that lack the funds for a comprehensive restoration. The management was carried out by the Church and the Chapel by an employee of the tourism office - an excellent guide! Check opening times on the Internet.
