    A church very beautiful and unique in Spain. Very well explained in the guided tour, which is the only way to see it. To improve that they do not let you be time extra after the visit. Recommended

    Church cruziforme, with two apses in header and foot cross and two chapels in the arms, although in reality it has six elements, because there are other two spaces between the header and the footer at different heights. The most remarkable are two entrance door horseshoe arches, perfectly-defined soprtados three marble columns. Inside we find that the cabecerra apse has pronunciation horseshoe-shaped though on the outside it is square. The apse of foot is also horseshoe-shaped, although the bow is more proninciado almost has semicircular form, here was buried San Genadio that remained until the 16th century. To the left of the main door, appears a staircase unprotected acede to the Bell Tower, also can be found a sundial on the facade. The Church has a fenced enclosure and is a jewel worthy of visit.
