  • It is the main churches of Pontevedra, built in the 15th century, commissioned by the Mareantes Guild. The highlight of the Church is the main facade, built in the shape of altarpiece in plateresque style, work of Cornielis of the Netherlands. Inside the basilical Church, still retains some elements of the previous Romanesque church in its walls. The ascent to the Bell Tower is recommended to, a 100-step spiral staircase leads to the small museum on two floors and culminates in a terrace where you can see the campaigns, one dating from 1640 and the other in 1910. The views from here, although they were better in their times, are worth. The ascent to the Bell Tower can be paying a donation of €1

  • Regrettable. The priest "tourists" bother you, and after talking with him, do not let me take a picture because I didn't have a cultural or scientific purpose (there was no mass and they were only three persons). Too bad that a work was declared a historic-artistic monument is in these hands.
