While the façade of the cathedral, destination of pilgrims visiting the purported tomb of the apostle St. James the Greater, is baroque, the interior is mostly romanesque. This is the oldest example I have found of pictures I have taken of the cathedral.
A somewhat strange apartment building for a housing collective of young professionals. Each tenant decided the size and position of their windows individually and along with the two tones of brickwork this lends the facade a playful and arbitrary character. The building sits on ‘pilotis’ and the large television aerial is a nod to pop culture.
