Guía del viaje

Día 1

Bande

Excellent example of a cruciform church, possibly the first one of its kind ever built. It has the shape of a Greek cross, totally vaulted, a single nave, an apse and a portico forming two simetrical lower and narrower ends, and a crossing nave of equal height forming a balanced ensemble with the main one. It has a lantern covered by a hipped roof over the crossing of both.

Built around 940 by St. Rosendo in memory of his brother Froila, this small oratory of 8.5 x3.85 x 6m, built with large blocks of well cut granite, consists of three small areas communicated through horseshoe arches: a lobby covered with a horseshoe dome, a central nave of groin vault, both rectangular, and a horseshoe shaped apse inscribed in a square wih shell dome.

Rivadavia

Small rectangular hermitage possibly built in the 15th century in which elements of one or several  High Medieval churches were reutilised, among which a magnificent horseshoe arch points out, of Visigothic trace, supported by impost capitals with a decoration that recalls the Ramiro art style, upon columns decorated and composed bases. It is also very interesting an Asturian type window with excellent openwork lattice in stone.

Día 2

San Cristovo de Cea

Templo cisterciense consagrado en 1239. Consta de tres naves separadas por arquerías apuntadas, un transepto y una gran cabecera con deambulatorio, también separados por arquerías de medio punto. El monasterio se completa con tres claustros y dos torres añadidas en el siglo XVI.

Orense

Temple constructed in three phases for what it re-joins in the first Romanesque plan of construction, Cistercian solutions and some elements of the Gothic art. It consists of three naves covered by vault of crucería, a great ship of cruise with Gothic dome and three apses of semicircular plant.

Día 3

Parada de Sil

Iglesia románica cruciforme, de una sola nave, transepto y triple cabecera, situada en un paisaje excepcional en el cañón del río Sil. Conserva parte de un claustro y todo el conjunto posee una magnífica decoración.

Nogueira de Ramuín

Consagrada en el siglo XII, la iglesia de Santo Estevo es uno de los más bellos ejemplares del románico gallego. Su planta, espaciosa y proporcionada, es basilical y está dividida en tres naves de cuatro tramos, con los tres ábsides en la cabecera. Ésta y el tramo siguiente corresponden al románico, mientras que los dos posteriores se asocian a un gótico avanzado
