  • It is one of the most curious churches in Galicia, since its plant is shaped like a scallop. It was built between 1778 and 1792, according to the design of the architect Antonio de Souto, in late Baroque style, with neoclassical influence. Inside stand the main, neoclassical altarpiece, 1789, as well as the image of the Virgin Peregrina, patron saint of the Provincial Council, the work of 1867 by the Catalan sculptor Luis Vermell y Busquets. Very curious is the pile of holy water, a gigantic shell of mollusk brought from the Pacific by Casto Méndez Núñez. The church visit is free, and the opening hours daily, from 09.00 to 21.00 hours. You can climb to the dome and even the towers.

  • Small and beautiful round church of the Virgin Pilgrim, whose figure dominates the altar. Meeting point for pilgrims of the Camino De Santiago (it can be sealed right there) is one of the symbols of the city of Pontevedra. At night it looks spectacular with lighting. It's good to see her.
