Church of San Pedro de A Mezquita
Church of San Pedro de A Mezquita, declared a National Monument in 1931, Romanesque with elements of transition to Gothic. It has a longitudinal floor plan and a nave sole, with counterforts and delimited by an imposing one that runs throughout the building, under which there is a continuous succession of modillions representing symbolic animals (wolf, snake), anthropomorphs and in one case a rosette ; ends in a pinion on what is available an Agnus Di and an antefixa cross (the lamb looks to the North, unusual in Galicia). Two images veil the entrance in the angle of the cornice and counterforts: San Pedro, patron, with the key in the right hand and another can be Santa Ana or the Virgin. Under the contrafortes a she-wolf suckling her lobe and a wolf devouring a lamb. In the second body of the façade two superimposed windows open; the lower one, between the cover and the rose window, is of half-point arc point and the upper one is a simple window on the cornice.
The rosette is decorated with floral motifs from the Santiago stream. The south portal, in addition to two semicircular arch windows with beautiful capitals, shows two lions that support their front legs on a cordonciño of a basket, under the arch of discharge. The apse, divided by tall columns, with three windows and corbels on its cornice, is covered by two roofs of unequal elements that alter their height and width. The nave is communicated by means of a double-divided arch with the apse, in which truncated columns are observed under a vault.How to get there
