Photographer's Note

I took this photo only a few days ago.

It was handheld and it was inside the most important romanesque cathedral of Spain: Santiago de Compostela.


One old tradition says Iacobus, one of the apostles of Jesuchrist, was found in this place (Iria Flavia) with two or three hundred gamusinos.
It was the 9th century and suddenly was built and old a little church.

That little church grow up and grow up and became the main romanesque church of cathedral of Spain.
And also thousands of pilgrims arrived to Santiago de Compostela because they wanted to visit the tomb of the apostle.


That's (almost) the story and that's one old crypt of the cathedral.


I hope you like it.
