Perorrubio
San Pedro ad Vincula


Perorrubio is a village of a handful of inhabitants near Sepúlveda. It seems a place forgotten by history, but it houses a real jewel of the Rural Segovian Romanesque : a church flanked on two sides by a splendid portico.

The church is dedicated to San Pietro in Vincoli and dates back to the end of the 12th century - beginning of the 13th and was restored at the end of the last century.

The portico with six arches boasts of capitals with beautiful decoration, illustrated modiglioni and the columns of the apse window are also illustrated.
One of these is decorated with two two-tailed mermaids.

Another mermaid is present on the modillions in company - among other figures - of a contortionist (or acrobat, recurring figure in the modillions) in long dresses. Perhaps a female figure?
