Santiago de Compostela Cathedral Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela dates almost entirely from the period of the 11C to the early 13C, although the so-called Façade do Obradoiro is a richly sculpted Baroque masterpiece. In the narthex is the Pórtico da la Gloria, with its exceptionally beautiful statues. Inside, the huge Romanesque cathedral is still intact and displays the typical features of pilgrimage churches: Latin cross floor plan, vast proportions, triforium, and an ambulatory for pilgrims to move around. The main nave and huge transept, itself also with aisles, are admirable in their blend of simplicity and incomparable majesty.
