Santa Maria das Areas Church, a place for pilgrims and art lovers

The Church of Santa Maria das Areas is a unique place for pilgrims, devotees and art lovers. After all, its beautiful architecture attracts the attention of pilgrims from all over the world to enjoy its spectacular views. It is a real jewel of Romanesque art whose construction dates from the 12th and early 13th century, although its style also shows other great architectural influences.

It is located in the outskirts of Fisterra, in the direction of the lighthouse and at the end with which it shares its name, it has a surprising natural beauty. In fact, as the visitors explore the place, they are welcomed by different unique characteristics of this place. On the one hand we find stairs to access high points, on the other hand, there are unique natural spots and, for the believers, there is a reference point by presenting a temple to pray.

It is located in the middle of the Camino de Santiago to Finisterre and Muxía, so it is a very interesting point for pilgrims. After all, its beauty stands out until it reminds the visitors of those old times when it had a quadrangular plant, with the continuous flow of pilgrims eager to see the Santo Cristo de Fisterra and, recently, the Nuestra Señora del Carmen chapel.
