Dated to the mid-12th century, the church of Santa Maria de Xaviña underwent major renovations later. The facade and the bell tower were put in place during the first third of the 20th century. The most remarkable part is the apse, vestige of a primitive Romanesque temple. It also has two belfries, making it a unique example of Galicia’s religious architecture..
Built with granite blocks, the single-nave church has an asymmetric barrel vault, narrower around the altar area. It has Romanesque capitals decorated with vegetable and figurative elements. It has a side sacristy with a bell tower belonging to another building. The unadorned facade has a window over the door and a bell tower with two openings at its base, which can be reached by a staircase.
Walk around the atrium to admire all these elements and spot the second belfry!
The church can only be visited during mass times, which are posted on the front door.
