  • It is a beautiful Romanesque church with original architecture and beautiful historic capitals. One downside: the welcome in this place... My experience is edifying, the church was open, so I go in and observe the architectural and decorative elements, but after 10 minutes, an individual calls me and makes me out on the pretext that this church had to close (5:10 p.m.). Stunned, I'm going to find out at a nearby information point: posting the closing time: 6:30 p.m. Three people (tourism staff, guide?) in an office first pretended not to be interested in my polite remarks and then haggled over an opening of the church for the sum of 2 euros... for the benefit of whom? What? and there is no indication anywhere that entry into this building is paying off. Curious practice...
