  • In each of the occasions on which I visited Santiago, I went to see the portico of glory. I love, there is something special, and I think it's the magic that master Mateo was able to give to his figures. Plastic, expressive, with life, something rare in the Romanesque sculpture and more using granite, hard rock hard work. Santiago chairs it, on the tree of Jesse, which are the footprints left by thousands and thousands of pilgrims that arriving at the Cathedral presented their respects the Holy.

  • It is the entrance to the Cathedral of Santiago. I thought that in the middle ages the pilgrims spent months to get to this Cathedral and tried to enter for the portico of glory, not always accessible to everyone. Can you imagine you travel thousands of kilometres with the stalking of the hunger, thirst and the bandits and reach this porch? I not embraced the Holy, I can not stand the rows.

  • This is a truly glorious doorway. Although closed at the moment - I would rate this as a highlight of Santiago and Spain. Can's wait to see it following the restoration.  more »
