Documental evidence of its existence goes as far as 1176; however its initial dimension did not surpass the area of the current central nave. In the existing temple, the church presents a Mannerism style unfinished façade, lacking a tower. Also worth highlighting are the stone coffers of the main chapel (of the second Renaissance), the multicoloured altar piece in gilt carved wood, an image that depicts the Baptism of Christ (in the central niche) and 16th century tiles covering the main chapel, among other elements. (National Monument)
