This church preserves part of a nave and the Mozarabic header, quadrangular, built from high quality ashlar, covered with a barrel vault that supports a two water roof with modillons of roll very similar to those of the nearby Santa María de Lebeña and San Román de moroso. Inside the two spaces are separated by a triumphal horseshoe arch that has undergone modifications throughout its history. There is no documentary reference about it, but the modillions allow it to be dated back to the 10th century, from the same period as the two churches mentioned.
