  • This is a hidden gem in a little town in Palencia. The church is just spectacular, with a beautiful Romanesque entrance. The entrance has the Pantocrator, the image of Chist as a Judge. He is...

  • a small church in a tiny village built along the road, you hardly believe the richness of its decoration. highly recommendable if you are touring Palencia countryside!

  • The facade is absolutely wonderful! Worth the drive!
  • This church is very famous for its portal and frieze, but for the layman it will surely be a great surprise to find this Romanesque jewel in such a small town. On the cover is its famous frieze, very similar to that of Carrión de los Condes. The cover has five semicircular archivolts decorated with checkered patterns, baquetones and vegetables. In the frieze there is a Pantocrator with the Tetramorphos that represents the four evangelists. To the side, the twelve apostles are represented, six on each side, separated by columns with arches supported by capitals decorated with plant motifs and in great detail. Stopping time, observing the sculpture of Christ, the folds of the tunic, each of the apostles and the sculptural and architectural ensemble of this façade will make you wonder how this church is not more famous. This itself makes it more special. Its interior is simple, with a single nave and you will be able to see the baptismal font recognized for its decoration and Romanesque antiquity.
