This church, built in the Romanesque-Byzantine style and richly decorated, is from the late 11th century. See in particular its western front, dating from the mid-12th century. Surrounded by an open-air market, the facade, carved like an ivory casket, is characterized by pinecone-shaped towers. It was thoroughly cleaned and restored in 1996. Carvings on the doorway represent biblical scenes.
