  • The Church sits by the river of that name. It is the oldest parish church in Santiago and its construction began in the 12th Century. This beautiful church boasts a cloister and museum and is open daily for visits.
  • Very authentic place
  • Preciosa Colegiata románica, con la peculiaridad de la inclinación de las columnas de la nave central del templo. Muy bonito claustro, remanso de paz y serenidad, lástima q no se conserve más q una parte del románico original
  • Sitio encantador,. Con una iglesia espectacular y mal explotada, ya que es la única iglesia románica con contrafuertes del mundo,. Solución a problemas del terreno de brañas. Interior increíble, con columnas inclinadas hasta límites insospechados. Buen retablo. Ríete de la torre Eiffel
  • Un sitio precioso e curiosa a súa inclinación e os enormes contrafuertes, unha pena que non puidemos acceder ao claustro.
