This little church is just off the main Plaza de Obradoiro, so it is often missed by visitors. The exterior is the main feature and worth coming to see even if the church is closed. The interior is simple and distinctly Baroque in style.

Nice little church behind the town hall. It is beautiful inside and out. Worth a short visit even though it is tiny in comparison with the main cathedral. Just a 5 minute walk from the main cathedral.

Ireja de San Fructuoso located on Rua das Hortas is a small but very beautiful church. Nice to look at the significant religious items there.

This is a beautiful little church on the approaches to the cathedral. It has a wonderful exterior, and works as a useful landmark as well when finding one's way back from the plazas.

We sat in the church by ourselves for a little while until someone else showed up. If you looking for that, it is great. For important or significant religious items, there's little to see.
