The work they've done on the floor looks great, and I'll reserve my opinion as to the columns & arches & ceilings etc as it is clear that your phone camera had difficulty getting them into proper focus. Except once, and that particular column looked fine.

I find that the new (clearly temporary) altar arrangement is ghastly.

I do not mind chair arrangements like that within the wide open space of a cathedral -- I saw similar in Poitiers along my Way down from Paris in 1994, and it really helped to emphasise the simple beauty of that Romance Cathedral.

It would be lovely to see some stills done by a professional photographer ...

Thank you Ivar !!!

Thank you, Ivar. I really appreciate a view inside the newly-refurbished cathedral. The floors and walls look spectacular. With no pews and so much under scaffolding, I was a bit disoriented. The new -- and hopefully temporary -- altar (agree with @JabbaPapa on the style 😳), is that directly behind the main altar? Anyway, great job on the video, appreciate your updates, and hope maybe sometime in 2021 I'll get to see it myself.

Thanks so much, Ivar! How wonderful to be able to see this! I even like the minimalist altar. It is only temporary, after all.
I'd imagine the restoration workers weren't terribly thrilled to have to start sharing the Cathedral with tourists again, but it really is all coming back to life again & that must make even them smile.

Muchas gracias, Ivar. Very informative video as I can now picture what they are doing both inside and outside. Last trek through Santiago was in September, 2018; a lot has changed around the Cathedral facade and interior since then.
Reading through several updated biotech research reports from my perch in Seattle, I'm not optimistic about having an effective AND available virus vaccine until mid-2021. Probably means I'll not be returning to Santiago in any but spiritual ways until 2022. Thanks for keeping the Camino flame burning.

By the way, nice Cougar hat. One of my favorite sports teams here in Washington, along with the Jesuit university, Gonzaga.
Buen Camino

Thanks so much for these videos, Ivar. I look forward to the day when I can worship in the cathedral again.

Many, various, and continuing.
this is great! I was wondering what it must be like in there. Gives a feeling for the purity of the lines, without all the gewgaws and furnishings in there. .. the great echoey vastness of it.
Thank you, Ivar.
Long time no see, man.

This brought tears to my eyes. Thanks so much for taking me back to the place I now consider my spiritual home. I long to return! I hope the old pews come back once the restoration is completed. I lifted the design for my shell tattoo from them. 😊🚶‍♂️
