Lonely Planet review
One of the most striking features of this church is its elaborate Romanesque west facade. Every evening from late June to mid-September, a spectacular colourful light show illuminates it. The earliest parts of the church date from the 11th century; the only original frescoes are the faint 12th- or 13th-century works that adorn the dome above the choir.
