Under that thick vegetation is the church.


St. Mogue founded an early church at this site. Other churches were built after the first one, what we see today is the last of them and has been remodeled some times during the years. Its east (90°) window dates from the 13th century.
The nearby graveyard has many interesting grave markers, but two of them are really beautiful.
One slab is next to the entrance gate, 2.40 metres from the gate pillar, aligned with others small slabs. It has a carving of a cross with wide terminal on the east side. Unfortunately a modern burial hides half of the ancient slab and not all the decoration can be seen now.
The other slab is in the centre of the graveyard, it is about 66 centimetres tall, 38 centimetres wide at the ground level and 30 centimetres at the top. On its west face there's a carved cross with concentric circles at its head. The cross has a square central boss and square terminals.
Other grave markers from the first half of the 18th century are all over in the graveyard.
