    Description

    The cathedral of San Martiño de Ourense, is the great unknown of the Galician cathedrals. Its fortress architecture gives it a unique and robust appearance that contrasts with the tranquility felt inside.
    Located in the heart of the city of Ourense, surrounded by small squares and old medieval streets, the cathedral is still today one of the main monuments of the thermal city. In a transitional Romanesque to Gothic style, the building has rich spaces and works that the visitor cannot imagine from the outside.

Access to the interior of the temple leads us to discover the Chapel of Santo Cristo, a Baroque landmark in Galicia; the fine Gothic-flamboyant altarpiece by Cornelis de Hollanda; the polychrome Pórtico del Paraiso, from the 13th century and numerous other jewels that will not cease to amaze the visitor.
    The guided tour of the cathedral passes through the main points of interest of the monument, in order for the visitor to get an overview of the details, curiosities and most remarkable works of the Aurian headquarters.
