The inside story

Santiago de Compostela Cathedral is the final and most iconic stop of the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage. Reputed to be the resting place of Saint James the apostle, this religious site has attracted pilgrims since the early middle ages. Construction of the cathedral began in 1075 on the remains of earlier churches hidden beneath today. Built in the Romanesque style with numerous Gothic, Baroque, Plateresque and Neoclassical add-ons, this is a monumental structure worth a visit on any trip to Galicia. On the famous central door (La Gloria portico) fashioned in 1188 by Master Mateo, the figure of Saint James appears to welcome the pilgrims as they enter the cathedral after a long journey. On your next trip to Spain, whether or not you're walking the pilgrimage route, come to Santiago de Compostela and be welcomed inside the Cathedral by the figure of Saint James himself!
