Wow. The lighting and the bright white paint really make those Romanesque arches stand out beautifully. And oh how the gold on the altar glitters. One of the things I heard in a video describing the cathedral renovation was how the errors of prior restoration works had been undone and that going forward maintenance and preservation will be much easier to accomplish. It is really beautiful, Ivar.

It looks like visits to the Pórtico de la Gloria, museum, Palacio del Gemirez, rooftops, etc. are still suspended. Hopefully it won’t be too long. Thanks so much for taking this video for us.

2015-2019 walked all or more than half of CF 7 times... CP recently cancelled by Covid 19!
What celebrations of the Holy Year(s) there will be in this beautifully renovated Church. May the hearts of so many pilgrims longing to worship in this Cathedral be renewed in our own time of cleansing.

Thank you, Ivar. You brightened my Sunday morning. The cathedral seems so bright. Is the statue of St. James Metamoris still on view?

Thank you Ivar. Is the Cathedral now open for 'pray-ers'? I only noted people walking around.

Wow!! It’s so brilliant and bright. I’m so emotional right now. I feel the Camino pulling me. I’ve walked three times. 2013, 2016 and 2019. I’ve always seen some sort of scaffolding or coverings on the Cathedral. After a difficult 2019 Camino, I said I am finished. But lately, lately I hear the call and after seeing this, I feel it again. I am scared, I am emotional, I am blessed. Please pray for me that I make it one more time. I have my sights on 2022. Thank you Ivar for sharing. God Bless you.

Dear Ivan,
Many thanks for your video. The cathedral looks beautiful.
Spain has a wonderful heritage of music, especially from the renaissance and baroque eras. May I suggest the following as more appropriate music to accompany the video (to take just three of the many possibilities -

Thank you Ivar. I walked in 2019 and so only saw it with scaffolding and plastic. Wistfully determined to do it again one day when it is safe. So want to see the botafumeiro swinging and still cannot believe that I got to walk the Camino just before the pandemic. i am grateful every day for that.

Thanks for the video, Ivar. What has happened to the old pews? I copied the design for my shell tattoo from them. :rolleyes:

I agree! I was surprised and a bit disappointed that those beautiful old pews with the shell were not restored. I'd buy one for my home if I knew one was available :)
