Church of San Fiz de Solovio

18th c. Baroque

This is the Compostela church with the oldest roots; according to legend, it was the dwelling place of the hermit Paio, who discovered the Apostle's remains. The church from the High Middle Ages was destroyed by Alamanzor and rebuilt by Diego Xelmírez in the 12th century. In the 18th century is was rebuilt again by Simón Rodríguez, who considerably extended the church grounds and constructed a new belfry whose design was often imitated throughout Galicia in later years.

All that is left of the Romanesque construction is the front, which includes a beautiful polychrome tympanum representing the Adoration of the Magi.
