The fachada cel Obradoiro (the western façade), (or Fachada de la Plaza del Obradoiro) was built in late baroque style (the Churrigueresque style) by Fernando Casas y Nóvoa between 1.738 and 1.750. The gable in the centre shows a statue of Santiago el Grande (St. James the Great), with his two disciples Athanasius and Theodomir, below, dressed as pilgrims.
This is the main façade and of course, the most famous, known all over the world.
