  • Romanesque style, it was built in the 13th century. The temple has an important artistic, architectural, and historical, in addition to the existence of medieval graves for example, Santisteban family or Bachelor Yanez. In the 18th century sank much of the vaults of the nave and they were reconstructed by Jerónimo García de Quiñones. They also had to redo the two Eastern sections of the ship, after the fire of the 2 of April 1854, which destroyed the main altarpiece (Joaquin de Churrigera). Romanesque architecture imitates the old cathedral that I invite you to visit! It seems that the Church is going to fall by having columns and vaults inclined, you can visit quietly but it is well established by multiple interventions. The Church suffered structural problems from the beginning. Already in the 13th century, were necessary reforms and reinforcements to the thrust of the vaults, which threatened the stability of pillars, walls and roofs, causing deformations in these elements. You can visit the Church for free and you can also visit the portico, the chapel of the martyrs and a very complete audiovisual Church but you have to give a small donation of €1.50, which will be donated for the maintenance of the same

  • It is the first church that took place in Salamanca, charge a small entrance fee to view the primitive Romanesque cloister. It is worth. I think it was €1,5. The rest of the Church is free of charge, as it could not be otherwise in a place of worship. The primitive Romanesque is impressive. Essential.

  • The old church is huge and the alter is a little less dramatic than some others in Spain however well worth checking out. Entrance is free and you have access to the smaller prayer rooms as well.  more »

  • It is a church, not a bar (nice church btw)
  • A nice small church.
  • Church appears to be under renovations. Very old and greatly in need of it. Will be a beauty to see once it's done, in certain.
  • The Church of San Benito was built in 1104. The original church was Romanesque style, but in the 16th century it was rebuilt by order of the Archbishop Fonseca, who had been baptized in it. Family Maldonado, who lived opposite, also collaborated in the construction, so that over the years the church became place of burial of some of its members. Most outstanding parts are the Gothic portal, the altarpiece from the 18th century and the ordeal of the 16th century. The Church was named to the side of San Benito, one of the two camps of nobles who fought for years for power in Salamanca.
