Catedral De Ourense - Review

Declared as a National monument in 1931, the Ourense Cathedral is a result of eight centuries of construction and altercations. From the time it was founded in 550 A.D till now, it has undergone various changes in its architectural style- ranging from Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-classical to finally incorporate the Latin Cross plan.

  • There are four entrances from four directions into the cathedral. Each of the entrances have intricately designed archivolts with the most striking being the west one, named portico of Paradise.
  • The Portico of Paradise was built by students of Master Mateo. Its three arches have intricately designed sculpture of incidents and events from the Bible, Centaurs fighting Mermaids, Dragons and Harpies.
  • Perhaps its most striking feature is the use of color palettes which were restored in the 18th century from the original Romanesque polychrome.
  • On the outside a huge octagonal lantern tower and a gothic dome from the inside was built somewhere in the 15th century. The dome which is about 200 feet tall, adds a royal feel to the place with its beautifully sculpted statues and walls.
  • The Cathedral also served as the final resting place of its keepers. Among them were Bishop Vasco Perez Marino, Bishop Lorenzo, Don Alonzo Gonzales del Padron to name a few.
  • The crucifix in the cathedral is said to be the most revered in all of Galicia.

Catedral De Ourense, Ourense Reviews

  • Beautiful Cathedral in the quaint Old Town of Ourense. The "Paradise Porch" is particularly striking because of the marble carvings of the apostles and was recently restored. There's also a nice statue of Saint James inside close to the entrance as Ourense is a popular pilgrimage route on the Camino de Santiago.The surroundings are nice too as the Old Town is well preserved and vibrant close to the main bars/ restaurants "Las Calles de Los Vinos".

  • Beautiful cathedral! The audio tour was very informative.

  • Stunning! Don't miss the portal, wow!

  • Bien guapo, además en fiestas. Me encantan esas calles peatonales y de piedra. El ambiente y la gente del lugar q amable es. Me encanta.
