Description

The church’s architecture is highly original. The western facade is made up of buttresses. The portal is decorated with Romanesque capitals. The bell gable was added in the 16th century.
The interior is composed of a single nave and a rib-vaulted polygonal choir, probably dating from the 14th century. The side chapels were built in the late Middle Ages and at the Renaissance.
