Joya del románico. Presta especial atención a los capitales pues cuentan pasajes bíblicos. Muchos de ellos han sido restaurados. En una de las estancias está la tumba de Alfonso I el batallador. Como dato curioso, en esa estancia hay un altar dónde se practicaba exorcismos. No dudes en apuntarte a rutas guiadas en la oficina de turismo.
