It is a church of Romanesque origin that has been remodelled and enlarged several times over the centuries. The church has three difficult naves in four sections, with a transept that stands out on the ground plan and a large chevet with ambulatory. In the centre of the apse is the Communion Chapel.
The interior is richly decorated with marble in different colours. Above the transept is a large dome on an octagonal drum resting on pendentives.
Although it may not look like it from the outside, due to the convulsive past that the church of San Pedro Apóstol has had and the successive reforms that have been applied, this building is of Romanesque origin. The façade has soft and delicate tones of white and white sandstone. The main entrance is located under two levels of arches that are higher than they are wide. The numerous blind rose windows and the bell tower stand out. Before 1936, the church had four altarpieces, which correspond to the artistic periods or reforms carried out. A Gothic one was followed by a Renaissance one, which was replaced in the 18th century by a third one, which was not the last one either.
