Astorga's Bishop's Palace

Interesting
This Modernist interpretation (1889) of a medieval palace is by Gaudi and constructed from local materials: granite from Monte Arenas, brick from Jimenez de Jamuz and slate from Galicia. In the chapel, the building's finest setting, are sculptures, frescoes, stained glass and azulejos by French and Spanish artists who were Gaudi's contemporaries. The palace also has the Museum of the Way (dedicated to the Compostela pilgrim route).
