Church of Nuestra Señora La Antigua possibly of Visigothic origin

This church stands opposite the south side of the Church of San Pedro and no explanation has been found for the proximity between the two. The date when its construction began is not certain and, according to tradition and certain archaeological work, it could go as far back as the Visigothic period.

Rebuilt in Romanesque style, the main front was refurbished by order of Juan Núñez Dávila in 1469 and the Romanesque semi-circular single-arch porch has been conserved.

Positioned in accordance with liturgy, it has a Latin-cross layout and one single nave finished off with an apse in granite masonry.

Used by Benedictine monks, today it belongs to a Teresian institution.
