Church of Santa María de Frades

The church of Frades summarises the spirit of the Romanesque style, being one of the best examples of this artistic period remaining in the entire municipality of A Estrada.

The nave is very spacious for the size of the church and, exceptionally, is covered by a barrel vault. The apse is rectangular and fairly old; according to some authors, it may even be prior to the 12th century. The main wall is crowned by a beautiful cross framed in a circle and made up of four leaves. The original construction has been fully preserved and the façade features a small rose window.
