“Very Unique Chapel”

Iglesia de la Virgen Peregrina

Attraction details
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This place caught our eye quickly. It is not a very big church, but it is in a prominent position in the city. It's located on the Pilgrim route from Portugal to Santiago de Compostela. The shape is semi-circular (scallop shaped actually) and it's dedicated to the Virgin of the Pilgrims. Inside she is dressed in pilgrim's clothes, and there is a beautiful neoclassical alter.

La Peregrina is a stone-built church localised in the heart of Pontevedra. It was erected in honour of the protector of the city, Peregrina's Virgin. In mid August, the city hosts many cultural events, exhibitions, gastronomical festivals and popular traditions such as Peñas. An unparalleled party where people get organised in large groups and play war games throwing wine over each other. It's a fiesta that goes on and on for days!

In the very centre of the town, near the old village and the commercial streets. This beautiful church is named after the Virgin Mary as keeper of the pilgrims.
Seeing It at night is a must. Highlighted in the dark by blue lights is the focal point of the stoned square and It is sorrounded by some of the old buildings of the city.
