Very close to Santiago: Melide

All that remains of the old Romanesque church is the south wall, with its eaves featuring corbels. The interior features an interesting altarpiece and beautiful images, such as that of “San Xoán” and “Santa Lucía.” There is also a Christ on the cross, with his right hand hanging down, which reflects great dramatic expressiveness and was made by the Furelos sculptor Manuel Cajide.
