Monastery of Holy Saviour of Bergondo

Old Benedictine monastery, whose fully refurbished church is the only currently preserved part. The monastery of Holy Saviour is a good example of monastic art from the Galician Romanesque art.

Description: It is a Romanesque building which was built in the XII century. It has a three-nave basilical floor plan and three semicircular apses with perfectly designed windows. The walls of the church are supported by strong buttresses, and the front facade is decorated with semicircular archivoltes on bent pillars. The door has two pairs of columns with toric bases, and leaves capitals which support a double splayed arch sculpted with chequered shapes and relieves.

What to see: Its worthy to see two medieval sepulchers located in the presbytery; and the South wall of the temple; where the chapel of Saint Catherine, which was built from the end of the XIV century and the beginning of the XV c, is also located. There, an interesting groin vault and bent columns, which preserve medieval sepulchres as well, stand out.
Sourrandings: In the atrium of the church, you can visit the calvary sculpture called cruceiro de Bergondiño. It is a Romanesque style work which consists of a three-step base, a circular and fluted shaft. The ornaments of the capital mix vegetal and mythological motifs on the four sides. The sculpture is crowned by an ornamented latin cross, having Christ crucified on the front; and Virgin Mary on the back.
