Town of Rejas de San Esteban

Heritage of Cultural Interest since November 8th, 2007.

 

This town is known for its two Romanesque churches from the 11th and 12th centuries, as well as its traditional architecture based on stone, adobe and wood. The two churches are dedicated to San Martín and San Ginés, and they are magnificent examples of the Sorian Romanesque architecture, both of which have arcaded galleries that are very interesting architecturally. However, as mentioned above, Rejas de San Esteban isn’t only important because of its landmarks, but also because of the fact that it has maintained traditional buildings which are characteristic of the Sorian Douro riverbank area. An example of this is a number of wine cellars that are prominent in the area.

 

The church of San Ginés only maintains the original main entrance and arcaded gallery due to the fact that it was rebuilt towards the end of the 18th century making it become the town’s main church. The façade is made up of four archivolts, decorated later on with checkered patterns, balls, and intertwining plan motifs with various capitals scattered throughout. The original door has been modified, although there are some arches decorated with checkered patterns and their respective capitals with animals and figures that are from the original construction. Inside, you can see its wooden ceiling that is from the Mudejar period which is beautifully decorated with heraldic coats of arms. Nowadays, the church of San Ginés is the only parish in the village due to the fact that the church of San Martín closed its religious services in the 19th century.
