The more recent church of the two, seen from the southwest.


At this site there two old and ruined churches with a graveyard around them.
There's also a nice old cross.
The more recent church of the two has a strange doorway whose tympanum has straight and linear decorations that look like they were rays starting from a figure which once stood in the centre.
The older church is much more ruined and nothing is left to see.
To the west of this older church is an old and plain cross with the head decorated with unusual square perforations. The cross has a height of 77 centimetres, a width of 27 centimetres at the base and of 66 centimetres at its arms, and a thickness of just 9 centimetres.
A ginger and white cat came with us during the visit.

UPDATE: June 7th, 2010 - We visited this church again and took new photographs.
