 San Martiño Pinario’s Façade, with a picture of the saint cutting his cape to give to the poor man on the top, above the cross. The façade was created by a Portuguese man. The stairs were made after the façade, so the door had to be shortened, that’s why there’s an arch on top of it, that was the original place for the door. The façade was created before the land was excavated in order to do the stairs’ maze.
