  • Surprised to enter and discover the level of care and restoration of this Cathedral (one is not customary, and I would even say that it removes certain charm). Among its references a chicken coop can be found (including rooster and hen) in honor of the legend of the hen sang after asada.

  • The Cathedral contains the tomb of Santo Domingo in an architecture with an overwhelming mix of styles. For my excels the henhouse, which, together with the Portuguese Bacelos bantamweight legend, help give more folk and popular touch to a magnificent building. Its separate building Bell Tower is another unique monument.

  • That may be unique in the world: according to a legend, the one innocent death convict life saved, should a roast chicken on the plate of the judge blown be, as this meant to the protestations of innocence the parents who pleaded for his life, "If that's true this fried chicken to fly away". And did so promptly! Still be but unfortunately high up behind bars and glass and therefore difficult to photograph - a rooster and a chicken kept in the Church - that would be exchanged according to a few days! Sentimental story and yet so beautiful and unique!

  • A truly impressive cathedral all mural painting which preserves, as well as his altarpieces and permanent exhibition in the cloister. The Gothic henhouse and his legend is very curious.

  • It is worth to spend time in this Cathedral. Among the curiosities: the chicken or the crypt. I didn't like the adaptation of the cloister to make exhibitions.

  • On the outside is nicest that inside. It is true that it is a jewel for many reasons, and have well mounted the permanent exhibition, but it is not that one comes out saying "wonder", as of other cathedrals.
