  • With its black virgin, surroundings and decor this is a must see Cathedral. I was there to do the Camino 18 months ago and had an emotional send off from the priest.  more »
  • Very well-preserved, harmonious, the cloister is worth a special visit. The treasure single room also deserves entry.

  • Be a shame to get tired as much to walk and climb stairs to reach the Cathedral Notre Dame without going, even quickly, visit the cloister which it is adjoined to the North. On the list of world heritage of UNESCO in the title of the paths of Santiago - Santiago, it was built in the eleventh and twelfth centuries and it is one of the most beautiful roman sets in Europe. It offers arcades in polychrome, historiated capitals and a room of the chapter with a fresco of the Crucifixion of the 13th. Pity that the entrance is so expensive (€6).
