Colexiata de Santa María do Campo

Colexiata de Santa María do Campo Review

Called "St. Mary of the Field" because the building was once beyond the city's walls, this Romanesque beauty dates to the mid-13th century. The facade depicts the Adoration of the Magi; the celestial figures include St. Peter, holding the keys to heaven. Because of an architectural miscalculation the roof is too heavy for its supports, so the columns inside lean outward and the buttresses outside have been thickened. Inside is A Coruña's Sacred Art Museum, which holds a collection of gold and silver religious art dating from the 16th century onwards.
