About the book

Designed in the Middle Ages to hold the relics of the apostle Saint James (Santiago), one of the most important figures of Christianity, the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is a masterpiece of religious architecture. The long history of the temple, which spans more than eight centuries, is reflected by the presence of elements pertaining to diverse artistic styles, such as the Romanesque, the Renaissance, the Baroque and Neo-Classicism.

To its architectonic and artistic legacy, Santiago Cathedral also boasts a great symbolic value, given that the monument is, since its origins one of the world's main centres of pilgrimage. This fact has determined the design of the temple, which combines functionalism and symbolism with the aim to facilitate the combination of liturgical rites with the constant flow of visitors.

This book about the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, published by Dosde, goes into all the aspects that have converted it into a architectural landmark, exploring questions such as the origin of the worship of James the Apostle, the temple's structural evolution and the significance of its iconographic programme.
