The "Casa del Cabildo" of Santiago de Compostela

Written by Super User. Posted in Santiago Compostelle.

The Casa del Cabildo is one of the best known in Santiago, any pilgrim or tourist who has walked around the cathedral will remember its magnificent façade, but surely what he does not know is that it is only four meters thick!

The great façade that we see in the Plaza de Platerías is nothing more than a scenographic backdrop. This was conceived as a kind of decorative closure that allowed the grandeur of the cathedral's plazas to be maintained.
