This huge church has an interesting history of having been relocated to the current place. With a magnificent front view it was worth the stop on the start of our day.

This is a beautiful old stone Church. I attended the pilgrim mass at 8pm on the evening after I arrived from my walk (Camino) and it lasted 19 minutes! Shortest mass I have ever attended.

This was a beautiful church, it felt very serene to just sit there and relax for a few minutes. It is very well located in the lovely town of Portomarin.
