An old church in the Old District of the city , mixing the original Romanic style with the others across the Historical Ages . Part of a former Catholic Complex , it's for sure a monument to visit and see with open eyes .

The church of Santiago, near the Praza do Xeneral Azcárraga (Also worth the visit). Built in the 12th and 13th centuries, it is probably the oldest church in A Coruña and the beginning of English Way to Santiago.
