Description

The tympanum is thought to date from the 12th century. It was broken into three pieces and has since been repaired. The carving depicts St George on horseback, with the horse trampling a snake-like dragon lying along the bottom of the tympanum. The nine voussoirs which are set around the tympanum are carved with animals, angels, foliage, and signs of the zodiac.
