São El Salvador church Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This is a small Romanesque church from the 12C behind which a campanile serves as a clock. The façade has a noteworthy portal with five archivolts covered in detailed decorative work. The tympanum, supported by two stylised ox heads, is decorated with two angels worshipping a Christ in majesty. The triumphal arch is beautified by a frieze with Arab overtones. A cordon of rounds runs around the walls, half way up.
