São Frutuoso de Montélios chapel

Interesting
Situated on one of the pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela, this Visigoth chapel, built in the 7C was included in the 18C São Francisco church. It was partly demolished by the Moors, then rebuilt in the 11C. It has a Greek Cross arrangement and shows some Byzantine influence. A door on the right side takes you to a small exhibition of relics.
