About the book
Home to the relics of James the Apostle, one of the most important figures of Christianity, the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is considered as a masterpiece of religious architecture, both for its structure, which combines functionalism and symbolism, as well as for its formal variety, a reflection of the temple's more than eight century history.
The construction of Santiago Cathedral was started in the Middle Ages in accordance with the canons of Romanesque architecture, but the successive refurbishments meant that Renaissance, Baroque and Neo-Classical elements could be incorporated. This stylistic fusion added to the singularity of the temple, which from its foundation converted into one of the world's main pilgrimage destinations.
This book closely analyses by means of texts, photographs and illustrations the historical evolution and the architectonic peculiarities of Santiago Cathedral, an ensemble declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in which devotion, art and architecture blend perfectly together to create a major pilgrimage centre.
