Very eerie old 8th century church with many wall frescoes but very difficult to enjoy due to the bad lighting inside the church.

Worth visiting, kept in good conditions and ideal for a stroll. This ancient Romanesque parish church is located just aside a small medioeval church, which has to be visited as well.
