Tourism resources:

Parish Church of San Adrián, 16th century. It has a single nave with chapels between the buttresses, and an octagonal chancel with five facing walls.
In its interior the highlights are two Baroque chapels dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary and to Christ, as well as a Romanesque image of the Virgin with the child. It is a Romanesque carving in polychrome wood from the beginning of the 13th century with features of Gothic style: the clothing, the verticality, the smiling gesture; linked to the typical features of Romanesque art: stillness, no communication between mother and child, she is a throne for Jesus.
