As with many religious building, the Cathedral in Tui was built on a site used for Christian worship since 5C. The current building was begun in 12C after waves of invasions by Normans and Saracens in previous centuries, and consecrated in 1225 AD. The building is difficult to see and appreciate, even though it stands on the brow of the hill, and the exterior gives no indication of what lies inside.
The view from the church terraces.
The Cloisters date from the 13C.
Beautiful – I could have lingered longer.
