This old collegiate church was possibly the first church in Asturias to be constructed in the Romanesque style, although it is inspired by the earlier pre-Romanesque Asturian art.

It was built in the late 11th century, and owned by the Marquises of Valdecarzana; in fact, the famous 'Mummies of Teverga' that are preserved in the church are the embalmed bodies of the first Marquis of Valdecarzana and his son, Pedro de Miranda.
The pre-Romanesque concept underlying this church can be seen particularly in the basilica-style layout with three naves –under barrel vaults– and three rectangular apses, as well as the portico on the west wall. The rounded arches, sculpted decoration of the capitols and modillions and other details are typical of the early Romanesque.
The church was completely remodelled in the 17th and 18th centuries in keeping with Baroque tastes, and the abbatial palace, cloister, choir, chapterhouse, sacristy and tower on the west wall of the church were added.
