Cathedral, Santiago de Compostela: 54 reviews and 137 photos

by micas_pt

Santiago de Compostela is known all over the Catholic world, since it is one of the three main Catholic symbols, together with Rome and Jerusalem.

The Cathedral is the ex-libris of Santiago de Compostela. It is said to be the most extraordinary monument built in Spain in Middle Age. The Cathedral has a total surface of about 23.000 square meters and its central nave is 97m long and 20m high. It is often said that Santiago is the stone converted into art.

Since there is so much to say about the Cathedral, I will split it into:
. history
. façade
. chapels
. other rooms

Address: Praza do Obradoiro (Obradoiro Square)
