NOTES: The church was founded as early as 795, but the present building was largely constructed in the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries, although work continued until the 14th century. The facade is a mixture of the 13th century (lower half) and the upper part (third and fourth tiers) are 14th century when there was a proposal to heighten the nave. The tiers of blind arcading which cover the upper part of the facade were also restored in the 19th century.
