This is a gorgeous church with a nice museum of Visigothic arts inside. The paintings on the walls are exquisite examples of the lost Mozarabic style - those Christians who had lived under Muslim rule and absorbed their artistic sensibilities, marrying them with Christian iconography....More

This small museum covers a time period not frequently covered. Although not much English it is clearly understandable. We discovered the bell tower is now open so make an effort to find the entrance somewhat hidden away.

You don't have to take long here to get a return on your investment for only a euro. Take your time reading everything and just soak it all in!

This is a very small museum. It was very inexpensive to get in. Not a lot to see but for the price glad we stopped in.

This well worth a visit if you can find the museum. There are several signs in the area, but not quite enough to actually guide you there. Even with a map we found it difficult. We had to ask several locals and most of them...More

The museum is small, and the exhibits not terribly interesting, and labelled only in Spanish. The building itself, with many remaining wall paintings is an absolute gem, though, and a delight to visit. After 5pm it is also free, though there is only a small...More
