Basilica of Nuestra Señora del Pilar
Baroque church of the Virgin del Pilar
A jewel of Baroque art. Built between the 17th and 18th centuries. Inside there is the Santa Capilla, work of Ventura Rodríguez where an image of the Virgen del Pilar can be found. Also of interest is the high altarpiece made out of alabaster, and the Renaissance choir-stall. The basilica was declared a National Monument. Along with the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, the Basílica del Pilar is one of the most important spiritual destinations in Spain. It is also a first-rate art centre containing a collection of valuable objects from different periods. Particularly important are the frescos painted by Goya in the choir and the Regina Martyrum dome.
