  • It is the most ancient religious monument of La Rioja. In origin it was a Roman mausoleum of the 3rd century, who was transformed into a Christian basilica in the 5th century, reusing architectural elements from the ancient Roman city of Tritium Megallum - Tricio Grande-, comprising the current village of Tricio, Najera and other nearby towns. Under the floor of the basilica were discovered burials of early Christian tombs of the V and VI, some Roman sarcophaguses of the centuries I to III, d. C. reused and other medieval; In addition to Roman funerary stelae and other Paleo-Christian. At the top are preserved remains of the Romanesque paintings from the end of the 12th century, repainted on the early Christian original of the 5th century. The building has a basilical structure with longitudinal aisles and header quadrangular. The aisles are separated from the central by arches supported by Corinthian columns formed by fragments of Roman columns in the 1st century. In the 18th century the interior of the basilica was covered with Baroque plasterwork. The original carving of the Virgin of arches, a pre-Romanesque black Virgin of the 11th century, is located in the parish church of Tricio.

It is worth.

  • Very interesting monument which is configured as a palimpsest reusing Roman elements and evolved in several stages. Building unfortunately little known, which speaks of the importance of certain Hispanic for the Roman Empire enclaves and reuse as a general practice in the high medieval period.
