Rock church, still used as parish temple, carved in a sandstone rock, possibly from the Visigoth period and reused since the first repopulation. Subsequently, a belfry was added and recently it is covered by a wooden roof to protect it. It consists of three accesses, one of them gothic access to the interior, that coast of two naves of different structure separated by a triple arched arches lowered on square pillars, finished in different headwaters, one simple with a triumphal horseshoe arch and the other triple. All the spaces are covered by vaults carved into the rock. On the same surface on which the church is excavated there are some twenty medieval tombs and there is another group south of the church.

For more information we include the video of the Interpretation Center of Valderrible, to which the photograph also belongs.
