The House of Two Saints shows Romanesque features, even though it was thought to be a Gothic building, thanks to the two reliefs of sleeping saints flanking the main entrance with 13th-century sculpture characteristics.

Nevertheless, the point in question is that this modest Romanesque house was built at the end of the 15th or at the beginning of the 16th century. This implies that the two sculptures were taken from an earlier building, most likely from the monastery of the St. Kasian, whose archaeological remains were found in the neighborhood.

There is an office for conservation in the building.
