The Church of Santa Coloma

This fine Romanesque church is notable for its tall, rounded three-stage tower - very different from the more typical square design of other church towers in the country. The old stone structure dates from the 9th century and contains a much venerated 12th-century statue of the Virgin of Coloma, a number of Mozarabic frescoes on its arched entrance, and a splendid font.1

The church is served by Father Gonzoles.
