Cathedral of Santiago

Pórtico da Gloria...

Built by Mestre Mateo, completed in 1188. The crowning glory of Romanesque sculpture, designed as a porchway with three arches. The central section represents the ‘Glory’, the final destiny of the just, presided over by a large sculpture of the resuscitated Christ. The left hand section represents the Jewish people waiting in the Limbo of the Patriarchs for the arrival of Christ, and to the right the Final Judgement that will be the destiny of all mankind.

The different pillars of the structure include the prophets and apostles in the mullion or dividing section, together with the tree of Jesus and a seated statue of the Apostle St. James.
