Fodor's Review

At the west end of the town walls, next to the river in a farmyard largely hidden by poplars, this small Romanesque hermitage was founded on the site where the remains of St. Secundus (a follower of St. Peter) were reputedly discovered. Outside, it has a realistic-looking marble monument to the saint, carved by Juan de Juni. The chapel is now closed to the public, but if you're lucky, you can ask for a key at the caretaker's house next door. Even without entering, it's worth the walk for a look at the exterior.
