Iglesia de Santiago el Real
tipo de documento semantico attraction
The Church of Santiago el Real is one of the pilgrims' stops. Dated in the 16th century, it is the church most related to the city, where the City Council would meet and the archives were kept. The façade, designed as a triumphal arch (17th century), is decorated with two statues of Saint James (Santiago), one wearing the pilgrim's habit and another Santiago "Matamoros" (St James the Moor-slayer).
Next to the Church is the Fuente de Santiago, also known as the "pilgrims' fountain" since here they would stop to rest and cool down.
