Nuestra Señora de la Antigua Church

Monument

Although it is the hermitage of San Andrés, located on the hill that dominates the village, which has been identified with the old monastery emerged in the tenth century, the fact is that it is the parish church that most clearly shows the heritage of the former priory Benedictine, as they still proclaim the blazons of Arlanza that look the adjoining houses, once belonging to the monks

This church is a single-nave building with a square head and sections covered by arched vaults, a Romanesque-style steeple rises at the foot, with a solid lower body, crowned by an inverted chamfer fascia that gives way to the belfry, with two embrasures of half a point and on top of them a smaller one, on which the typical pinion finish is available.

The Church has six fragments of relief discovered in the interior walls of the nave, in its rear half, pieces decorated with four-pointed stars carved with a bevel and framed in circles, reminiscent of the Visigothic tradition.
