Chapelle Saint Sauveur

Rural heritage, Historic site and monument, Chapel

A stopover on the road to Santiago de Compostela, this domestic chapel is a place of pilgrimage with a very ancient origin, with a particular devotion to the fountain located below the chapel. The house of the Sorhoeta family and its chapel fell under the dependence of the Premonstratensians who set up a relay for pilgrims to Compostela. The building has a stocky plan, with a single, almost square nave, which is extended after a slight narrowing of the side walls by a semi-circular apse. It is not vaulted. The apse is buttressed by three buttresses, probably rebuilt in the 18th century. To the west, the façade is extended by a small bell tower-wall. The entrance gate opens under a pointed arch with large wedges and has a comma closure system. A few tombstones remain between the old terracotta tiles.
