From the middle Ages we can highlight this little chapel proper of the Romanesque, with apse and corbel under the side wing. Next to the chapel there are remains of a fortress from the 10th century. According to Bango Torviso, two popes of the 12th century confirmed to this church its relation to the Santiago de Compostela order.
