The small village of Orús is located nearly at the end of the River Basa valley. Its church is Romanesque with a Jaca influence.

The Church is rectangular in plan with a semi-circular apse. Two side chapels and a bell tower were added later.

Outside, the apse has a window with two columns under a semi-circular arch, which is decorated all around with the Jaca chessboard pattern. There are several corbels under the roof, some of which are decorated with balls and animal heads, etc.

The wall paintings that decorated the interior of the Church are from the 15th Century and were in bad condition. The canvases have been transferred to Jaca’s Diocesan Museum (Museo Diocesano de Jaca) and are on display there.

The Church has been declareda Property of Cultural Interest (and a Historic/Artistic Monument since 1981).
