Cathedral Of Santiago Of Compostela Or Catedral De Santiago De Compostela - Review

It is one of the finest examples of Romanesque art in Spain. The church was build just above the tomb of St. James (that was discovered in 819 AD). The construction of this church began in 1060 in the reign of Alfonso VI and was completed in 1211. With the passing times, various elements were added leading to a dramatic change of the exterior in the 16th -18th century. So, in the architectural design of the exterior portion you get to see Baroque style while the interior still retains its Romanesque art form.

Significant features of the cathedral is the facade. Its architectural work is the extended composition on the Plaza del Obradoiro; the entrance has the famous Portico de la Gloria, carved by Maestro Mateo (in 1188) and is a finest example of medieval art; the museum that’s tells you about Santiago and a library.

Cathedral Of Santiago Of Compostela Or Catedral De Santiago De Compostela, Santiago De Compostela Reviews

  • One of my top 3 cathedrals seen. Unfortunately the lines to visit the interior were huge. Even so, the outside is breathtaking

  • For more then thousand years this cathedral has been the goal for millions of pilgrims who walked El Camino de Santiago. Just that fact makes this place uniquely fascinating.

  • As already being said this very huge building is just marvelous. If you can just visitthis place whent the botafumeiro event is on. You can not miss this place if you are in Santiago.

  • Its a big Church, like thousands of others. If you're planning to do camino de Santiago rather pick Fisterra as your final goal, the end of the world is much more Epic in my opinion.

  • This is of course THE most important sight in town. Amazing interior and exterior, worth taking a trip.
