Wonderful classic - a must see for pilgrims. (And don’t miss the nearby gourmet restaurant, Hostería de los Palmeros. A bit expensive, but an experience too amazing to miss.)

Amazingly restored Roman church. Interesting to take a look at the maquette which is inside to see what the church looked like before the restoration. It has amazing details.

Different looking to the usual medieval church with twin towers. The inside is plain but natural and shows its age well. The arches pushing out supporting the weight, and the sombre feeling found within.

Nothing had quite prepared me for this miracle. It is a national monument and was restored, impeccably, about 100 years ago. A gorgeous, honey coloured stone, it is in near perfect condition. The decoration on the outside is minimal, but in the inside it has...More

Walk all around the church to get the full perspective of its shapes. Also watch the shadows change as the sun moves. Great for photographs.

San Martin and San Pedro are within a five minute walk. The day I visited San Martin there was a music program with classical, Spanish guitar. First rate!
