This little church is just off the main Plaza de Obradoiro, so it is often missed by visitors. The exterior is the main feature and worth coming to see even if the church is closed. The interior is simple and distinctly Baroque in style.

Nice little church behind the town hall. It is beautiful inside and out. Worth a short visit even though it is tiny in comparison with the main cathedral. Just a 5 minute walk from the main cathedral.

Everyone visiting Santiago should visit this church. The exterior is spectacular so even if it is closed take in the wonderful exterior. Worth a visit.

Ireja de San Fructuoso located on Rua das Hortas is a small but very beautiful church. Nice to look at the significant religious items there.

This is a beautiful little church on the approaches to the cathedral. It has a wonderful exterior, and works as a useful landmark as well when finding one's way back from the plazas.

We sat in the church by ourselves for a little while until someone else showed up. If you looking for that, it is great. For important or significant religious items, there's little to see.

I loved this church. Located just behind the Plaza de Obradoiro, if you look at it from the Plaza you are almost at eye level with the top of the tower! It is basically a circular church, very pretty and interesting. There was even a...More

We were walking on Praza do Obradoiro and saw the church from there; so went down to have a look. There was a mass when at the time we entered it. The church is beautiful but doesn't have as much much artwork as the cathedral...More
