    SIETEIGLESIAS

    Necropolis of Sieteiglesias

    Sieteiglesias Necropolis is located around the Church of St. Peter the Apostle and on a large Rocky area of granite.

    The work carried out since the year 2001 until now they speak of a chronology covering all the high middle ages, and may correspond to the reforestation that took place in this area between the 9th and 11th centuries.

    Two basic types of tombs are distinguished in the whole of the Necropolis: anthropomorphic tombs excavated in the rock and CIST tombs.

    The first respond to a type of burial in which the pit was directly carved into the rock, they tended to be oval and spindle-shaped forms (bathtub), and sometimes anthropomorphic form (playing the silhouette of the dead) some of them even with the form of recess for head and shoulders.

    The second type of tombs, CIST calls, It consisted in the formation of a box from slabs of stone nailed vertically around the pit, with another slab larger than closing the Tomb. They are a type of tombs which usually tend to form groups (usually family groups), next to a church. In relation to these groups noted the so-called traditionally for neighbors the tomb of the Kings.

    Although the Necropolis is situated close to the Church of San Pedro Apostle does not seem that there is relationship between the two since the Church was built in the 17TH century, at a time when there was the Necropolis.
