Trigueros del Valle
church of San Miguel Arcángel
Trigueros del Valle is a town of about 300 inhabitants in the province of Valladolid.
He must have known better days: is characterized by two churches and a castle.
One of these churches, San Miguel Arcángel, has an impressive entrance arch.
The work of the twelfth century is an example of rural Romanesque in the Valladolid region.
The entrance portal, on the south side, is emphasized by seven arches beautifully decorated with geometric and plant motifs.
The first bicaudal mermaid is located on one of the columns on the left side of the entrance arch.
A second two-tailed mermaid makes a good show of itself among the apse modillions.
