Catalan term or phrase: afegides
La senzilla estructura d’aquesta fou alterada en ser ampliat el temple amb dues naus afegides que acullen una sagristia i una capella quadrada. A la façana de ponent, on s’obre la porta, molt senzilla, amb un arc adovellat, fou construït un porxo amb coberta d’embigat

Explanation:
Dear Ailish,

"afegides" means "added", referred to the naves or aisles of the building. Adjacent is also good, so choose what you prefer :)

Hope it helps, Flavio

Explanation:
I'd go for a whole clause, since any participles or adjectives would feel clumsy in English.

"Adjacent" I also will certainly not buy, wrong sense altogether.

"Two added naves.." - at most I'd feel comfortable with "additional" but even that is stretching a point because there weren't any naves there before, only the simple (central) structure.
