St Peter's Church

Interesting
This Romanesque Church (11C) used to belong to a Benedictine monastery. Built according to a plan with three naves, it has a curious deambulatory, formed with five arches supported by four pairs of columns. The carefully crafted capitals show the influence of northern Italy. On the facade the attractive central opening surrounded by sculpted reliefs depicts amongst other things lions and floral motifs.
