Like many medieval towns and villages, Frómista owes its existence to the presence of a monastery whose importance and needs would have generated a settlement around it. We refer to the San Martín monastery, founded in 1066 by the widow of King Sancho el Mayor, who, after the death of her husband, retired to live in her native Castilla.
The construction of the monastery took place over several decades, giving rise to an extraordinary Romanesque work around the year 1100, whose architecture in the case of the church, is not very different from what may be seen today, since it was completely restored between 1894 and 1904,  making the church of San Martín de Frómista  one of the best preserved of all Romanesque buildings.
The church has a basilical floor plan, with three naves with four sections and a transept with reduced arms. From its exterior we would mention first of all the set of volumes, the great sharpness with which the different volumes of the building are trimmed, cleanly and harmoniously.

Además, en la foto de la vista de la fachada principal de San Martín de Frómista, en la foto de arriba, se puede ver (aguzando mucho la vista) la figura de un pollo colocada como si fuese una gárgola. Está situada en la punta de la torre izquierda.
Ya que la nave central carece de claristorio y sus bóvedas empiezan a la altura del vértice de las colaterales, la nave antes del crucero tiene la estructura de una pseud-basílica. Los ábsides albergan diversas esculturas medievales, entre las que destaca un Cristo del siglo XIII, en el de la nave central.
El interior de la iglesia, aunque en general sobrio, tiene algunos elementos decorativos de interés. Destacan los capiteles de las columnas (algunos de ellos, reconstrucciones modernas de los originales), con imágenes vegetales, animales o narrativas. Entre ellos merece la pena observar con detenimiento los dedicados a la historia de Adán y Eva, o a la fábula de «La zorra y el cuervo».

The construction of the church was begun in the second half of the 11th century by will of Queen Muniadona of Castile, as part of a monastery, which has disappeared. The church is mentioned for the first time in 1066, and is stylistically connected to other Romanesque edifices in the Way of St. James, such as Cathedral of Jaca or San Isidoro de León.
In 1118 it was assigned to the Benedictine priory of San Zoilo at Carrión de los Condes. The monks abandoned the site in the 13th century, giving it to Don Juan Gómez de Manzanedo. During several changes of ownership in the following centuries, the church received several additions in the 15th century: a bell tower over the original dome, and a sacristy. After the Middle Ages it started to decay, and in the 19th century it was declared no longer fit for use as a church.
In 1894 it was declared a National Monument and a restoration was started.[citation needed] This brought the church back to its original state, removing numerous later additions. The church was reopened to the public in 1904.

There are two interesting turrets in the corners of the gable end and a Gothic crucifix of the 13th century. Inside, the three naves are divided into five sections, the fifth one being higher than the rest and forming the transept. The naves are covered by round barrel vaults. The lateral vaults are lower and narrower than the central and transept ones, and rest on round arches.
