San Tirso

is the oldest brick building in Sahagun. The Romanesque church dates back to the 12th century. It has three naves ending in semicircular apses. The massive crossing tower has three rows of windows. It collapsed in 1949 and was reconstructed.

San Tirso, Sakophag

In the center of the choir stalls is a sarcophagus from the 13th century. It was originally in the ruined monastery of San Facudo y San Primitivo.
