30.- Church of San Juan in Amandi A Romanesque church which was built in the 13th century (although a record dates it back to 1134. an implausible date due to the style of the building). In 1281 it was passed onto the Abbot of Valdediós. In the 17th century the western portico was constructed and in 1755 it would be rebuilt. It has a large-scale rectangular nave and a semi/circular apse. with a sacristy that adjoins the Northern side and a large portico on the South and the West. The decoration is very rich and has many figurative motifs: chequered. vegetal and geometrical motifs. The western façade has four pointed archivolts with zigzag. five-petalled and faced head decoration. The southern façade is decorated with five-petalled motifs on the dust guards. The aspse has adjacent columns and two horizontal stripes with straight and oblique “taqueado” and four-leaved decoration. On the inside of the building. the apse has a richly decorated double archway. which includes scenes of the Binding of Isaac. the Original Sin. Jacob’s wrestling with the Angel. Christ Pantocrator or the Hunt of the Wildboar. to quote just a few. Between 1780 and 1796. the building was relocated block by block to its current site.
