Mondoñedo : Michelin's recommendations
Mondoñedo stands at the bottom of a verdant valley. Its squat houses, with their slate-tiled roofs, and the wide golden stone façade of the cathedral are particularly charming. The streets in the old town are lined with pretty whitewashed houses decorated with coats of arms and wrought-iron balconies. The cathedral square is adorned with attractive arcades and glass galleries known as “solanas”.

The large façade unites the grandiose baroque of the towers added in the 18C to the Gothic grace of the three grand arches in the portal and the rose window built in the 13C. The inside is in the Romanesque transition style and is lit up by the rose ..
The church stands alone on a hill. It is archaic in style and unusually for the region, totally different from Compostel influences. Inside, note the 10C capitals in the transept.
