About Iglesia De Santa Eufemia, Ourense
The most significant church in its facade and the second oldest after the Orense Cathedral, it took about a 100 years in the making. It was built in the 17th century by the order of Jesuits. The facade which is constructed in Galician baroque style is particularly striking for its asymmetry and its concave shape. Because of a huge number of houses lined up on either side of the church, the designer Friar Placido devised a concave pediment. In its interior lies a Latin cross with three longitudinal ships, and is dominated by a large Baroque altar with Christ of Hope.

One of the splendid church's in Ourense, outside it's not much to look at but on the occasion they have held a wedding I have had the chance to look inside and it is a great example of late 1700 architecture
Estuve en varias bodas. Todo muy ordenado, limpio y organizado. La Iglesia es grande y bastante amplia.
Es una iglesia hermosa en el centro de la ciudad, la unica pega son los gitanos a la puerta.
Iglesia muy bonita, ubicada al lado de la zona de vinos. Amplia escalinata para acceder al interior, y campanario renovado.
Un sitio precioso. Tuve la oportunidad de hablar un poco con el párroco y fue muy amable y atento, siempre que puedo me paso por allí.
