Iglesia de Santa María de Narzana

Romanesque church built at the end of the 12th century. Rectangular, it has a single nave with a wooden roof, with a semicircular apse covered with a quarter-sphere vault and a portico closed to the west. The main portal, on the west flank, is richly decorated. It has three semicircular archivolts with floral decoration, zigzag, interlacing. Flowers appear on the smock and fascia and vegetal and zoomorphic motifs on the capitals of the columns. The roof of the church rests on corbels where representations of human figures and animal heads abound, while several scenes appear on the metopes, such as that of Daniel among the lions and the Adoration of the Child.
