St. Ildierna Church, Lansallos (image from Street View)

You can see the tower of St. Ildierna church from miles away.  The interior of the church was partly destroyed by fire in 2005 but has since been restored through donations.

The village of Lansallos is listed in the Doomsday Book (the landowner survey done for William I and completed in 1086) as the Manor of Lansalhas !!!
