San Martiño de Riobó Church


It is the only church with a semicircular apse in our region that preserves a piece of the original Romanesque front: the entrance formed by two semicircular arches in edge. The exterior arch leans on the jambs and the interior one on a pair of columns with attached monolithic shaft. The capitals, with floral motifs, are very deteriorated due to erosion. The opening of the door is lintelled and the tympanum, formed by two pieces, lacks any sort of ornamentation. Below the vestry a part of the modillions can be seen.
