Church of Santiago (Pesoz)
Pesoz (Western Asturias)
Iglesia de Santiago (Pesoz)
  • Ecclesiastical
The church is one of the most iconic elements of Pesoz.

It has its origins in the Romanesque period, probably in the 13th century, but was successively rebuilt and enlarged: the entrance porch in the 15th century, a side chapel in the 17th century, and the chapel on the opposite side in the 19th century.

The church has a single nave with side chapels. It presents a square layout to the outside, with the apse jutting out.

The walls are of plastered rough slate masonry, with ashlar on the corners and in the bays. The roof is slate with a bell gable with two bays.

The church houses various Baroque works from the 18th century: a very popular carved Christ Crucified, three altarpieces and several statues.
