Santiago de Breixa

A Baroque parish church, with a single nave and a rectangular apse it retains Romanesque remains in the headwall such as a semicircular window with double archivolt, as well as interesting corbels on the south wall. The interior of this church is worth a visit, especially the chancel.

In its beautiful interior (12th century), is emphasized the iconography of the capitals that offer an impressive display of medieval bestiary, almost unique in Galicia, alluding to the deadly sins and passions of man and his battle against them, centaurs, harpies, sirens, shackles, lion heads and wolves, birds of prey, snakes and other fantastic animal smake up a theme that experts consider an exception in Galician Romanesque.
