Monastery of St. Martín de Frómista (Palencia)
Founded by the Countess of Castile, Dona Mayor, in 1066, the monastery of St. Martin de Fromista was considered one of the “purest” symbols of Romanesque architecture in the whole Palencia region. Unfortunately, most of the original structure was not preserved, but the distinctive elements of Romanesque architecture can still be spotted in the main church, with its three-nave structure and 50 capitals with ornamentation similar to the ones seen in other important Romanesque buildings along the Camino, such as San Pedro of Jaca and the Basilica of Santiago of Compostela.
