The Holy Door

In Plaza de la Quintana you will find the Holy Door, which is open during some years and closed during others. Of course, because it only opens during Holy Years! If you do not go through it in 2010, you will have to wait until 2021 to get another chance.

Have you seen its 24 magnificent “doormen”? These are 12th-century figures that were rescued from Maestro Mateo’s stone choir, which occupied the centre of the Cathedral for many years. And from up above, St. James the pilgrim is looking down at you along with his two disciples.
