Visiting the roof is a different, and enjoyable, way to explore this medieval basilica. Sit on the roof, and calmly listen to his stories and look across his surroundings.

The roof is 30 meters high and is made of granite, taking the form of a series of steps.

In the Middle Ages, pilgrims visited the roof of the cathedral. At the stone font, overlooked by the "Cruz dos Farrapos" (The Cross of the Rags), they carried out the ritual of burning their old clothes, worn on the pilgrimage. A group of visitors is next to this place in the panorama.

Good luck with the weather!

Behind the scene : how this panorama was made

Although this is not a so good quality panorama, I want not to miss this end of the year event.

Las cubiertas de la catedral de Santiago de Compostela

Visitar las cubiertas de la catedral es una forma diferente y divertida, incluso para niños, de conocer esta basílica medieval. Siéntate en la cubierta y escucha con tranquilidad las historias que encierran y contempla a la vez el magnífico entorno que las rodea.

Las cubiertas se encuentran a una altura de 30 metros, y están hechas de granito formando una especie de escalera.

En la edad media, los pelegrinos ya visitaban las cubiertas de la catedral. En el pilón de piedra presidido por la "Cruz dos Farrapos", realizaban el rito de quemar la ropa vieja que habían llevado durante el peregrinaje. Se puede observar en el panorama un grupo de visitantes junto a este lugar, al lado de la torre sobre el crucero de la catedral.

¡Buena suerte con el tiempo!
