The Visigothic king Recesvinto ordered this religious structure to be built in the 7th century. It is the oldest remaining one of its kind in Spain. Its basilica plan is of great quality and reflects firm spiritual conviction. One of its main features is the use of the horseshoe arch, very common in Visigothic buildings, along with the Paleochristian basilica plan. Some classical capitals and shafts reveal the fact that it is built on the site of a former Roman temple.
