Church of San Martín de Tours (Berzosa)

Monument since June, 1996.

 

The most outstanding feature of this 11th-century Romanesque temple, one of the oldest in the entire provinces, is perhaps its porticoed gallery with seven ashlar arches. The gallery guards the main façade and emerges from a podium with embossments and seven openings, the central one being the entryway and then three on either side. They are smooth rounded arches that sit on top of monolithic quadruple columns all throughout except the columns on the ends which are double columns. The bottom parts look like claws and they are topped with plant motif capitals that depict acanthus leaves, bulbs, swirls and streaks. Two of them represent a pair of one headed lions on the angle, sticking their tongue out and with their tails on their backs. The northern and southern walls of the nave, a small window and the porticoed gallery still maintain their original stonework. Likewise, inside there are two original capitals that support the major altar and a polychromatic carving of the Crucifixion that dates back to the 13th century.
