  • The origin of Peñalba, = (White Mountain) and comes from limestone whose color is white. and Mozarabic refers to the Christian peoples living on the regions conquered by Muslim women. Thus remained four churches Mozarabs very influenced by the cordobese achievements, including that of Santiago de Penalbe, which is on the way of St. James. Wonderful style of Mozarabic art is found in the exterior arcades in special form of a Horseshoe. Of the Bell Tower dates back to the XI century and is Romanesque. This church was founded in the X century by a monk, Gennade, in memory of St. Jacques

  • Make two times the road until reaching the town was worth to see this church, which crowns the visit a beautiful people. I remember the hours in the afternoon, but at noon is not open until the 14th.

  • Undoubtedly one of the jewels of the Mozarabic. It is located in the paradise village of Peñalba de Santiago, known throughout the province for its careful architecture, cobblestone streets and its medieval character. The Church of Santiago de Peñalba, dating back to the 10th century, contributes to this. Notably, the entrance to horseshoe arches and the remains of the original polychromy of the site. Large (Wednesday to Sunday) opening hours. Ideal complete the visit with a visit to the cave of San Genadio, about 45 min. of the people by a well marked trail.

  • This church is all that remains of what was the Monastery founded by St. Genadio, back in the century X. It is a building with Latin cross plant; its interior is accessed through a door with double Horseshoe arch, supported by three marble columns and has a clear influence Muslim. In its interior you can see remains of the wall paintings that originally covered the entire building. It is a free visit and we miss only a detailed explanation or a brochure that helps understand the gem that we are observing. If you were to Peñalba de Santiago, his visit is essential

  • A church Mozarabic, small, but with details worthy of admiring and steeped in history. Worth a climb up to the people to see this work and approach the cave is San Genadio. That shame that the fire that there has been this summer has damaged both the landscape.

  • Beautiful Mozarabic Church, the few that exist in the North of the peninsula. The village is a charming, wood and stone, and in autumn the mountain shows you colors while doing the walk from the village up to the Hermitage of San Genadio.
