Photographer's Note

The church of San Pedro de Avila is located in the Plaza del Mercado Grande, off the Puerta del Alcazar, forming one of the most attractive of the city.
Probably the cause of his building would be the existence of a place of worship before. He had to be started around 1100 with a design very similar to that of San Vicente, although in the end there are important differences between these temples.
The sanctuary of St. Peter, the first thing to build, is of high purity Romanesque. At the end of the twelfth century would have finished the bulk of the temple rising from the west gable, although in the fourteenth century was almost recreated. It is also the post cimborrio that would be lifted, as in San Vicente, at the beginning of the fourteenth century.
Finally, San Pedro is a church of a Latin cross plan with three naves of five installments finished with three apses header staggered bill similar to San Vicente, but lower by the absence of crypt. Cruise has accused cimborrio and more attached to the tower north arm of the cruise. A church, accessible by three doors.

The north gate is the most valuable. Archivolts has five half-point, some with decoration of rosettes, Zigzag, and tips of diamond.

The West has a gable door six archivolts baquetonadas, and a large Gothic rose window. It seems that this facade underwent major transformations in the fourteenth century, without losing flavor Romanesque.
In the interior, the media constitute the pillars on a Greek cross with semicolumns on their faces, with the idea of the craft abovedar central and barreled fajones. As in San Vicente delay in the construction did change his plans and had to adosar some small brackets for the nerves of the cross.
