Our Lady of the Pillar

Interesting
The present monument, Saragossa's second cathedral, was designed by Francisco Herrera the Younger around 1677. It is a quadrilateral, supported at regular intervals by buttresses and illuminated by a central dome. Cupolas, adorned with frescoes, some of which are early works by Goya, were added in the 18C by Ventura Rodríguez. The Chapel of the Virgin is a church in miniature which houses in a niche the pillar and Gothic wooden statue of the Virgin.

Our reports

Zaragoza, Aragon

Roman, Arabic, Gothic, Renaissance… but above all else, fiercely modern. The capital of Aragon is not the most popular of Spanish cities. A good reason to head there for a weekend and divide your time between its heritage and its tapas bars.
