  • The basilica is well preserved as a whole, with a good facade to feet straddling the final Gothic and the plateresque. I'd like to highlight inside, in front of the foot there is a collection of reliefs on Super Genesis and to explain comics to children is great. I clarify that I am not religious, but the tales (knowing that they are belief) like all children. Ultimately, experience recommended.

  • Among the charms of Pontevedra this this beautiful and particular Basilica, its facade is impressive, with a beautiful image carved in stone, from the Bell Tower you get good views of the city.

  • Beautiful edifice built by funding from the sailors of Pontevedra and not by shipowners. Very decorated outside and inside. Very visited by tour operators, you can get into the tower to admire the panorama and be near bells. (€1).

  • Important religious building of the s. XVI with exemplary architecture. Declared a basilica at the end of the last century. It is worth visiting.

  • You can't miss the visit to this church even if you're not religious. Cloister precious and worthy to know the Church and its wonderful organ. The friendly super healing, as well as his parishioners that explained to us that it had cloister.
