West Facade
Caption
Exterior view of the church from the west. The west facade is still a fine example of Romanesque art, although it has suffered a great deal of damage. The upper half was once richly decorated, including an equestrian sculpture of Constantine or Charlemagne, but none of this has survived; it was replaced with the present plain facade in the 15th century as part of essential repair work. The twin conical turrets on the ends are original from the 12th century, as are the three portals below.
