Church of The Asunción
Built in the second half of the 12th century, it is a beautiful manifestation of rural Romanesque. Unique, harmonious factory ship.An apse with Lombard arches, very rare in Castile, takes lights of dawn. Cover with tile, historical capitals and geometrically decorated archivolta.
In the capitals, a snake spreads as a symbol of evil while two lions guard the tree of life. Interior with bows and barrel vault, which stands out for its architectural perfection and aesthetic harmony. Slenderness and balance of bare stones.
Two large capitals are home to a curious fauna of figures: saur-powered centaurs, double-tailed sirens and enigmatic soldiers. Strength and temptation, brutality and invitation to lust.
Mermaids and centaurs symbolize the basic pulses of human nature.
