General description

The church is of Romanesque origin, and its dedication to the archangel also point to its antiquity.

Parts of the masonry above the base of the church itself and in the tower are still from the Romanesque period. Gothic modifications were carried out after 1465. The nave was not provided with a vault until the 17th c.
