Description

Romanesque church from the early 12th century. This is one of the finest examples of rurlal Romanesque in the province. Together with the church, some remains are still visible of the Convent of Benedictine nuns, who inhabited it until the beginning of the 16th century. It has a free-standing military tower, adapted as a bell-tower. It forms part of the town, next to the Cobato pazo, built in 1847, and with the arms of the Feijoo family; it shows no peculiar characteristics that stand out in its construction.
