Thank you so much Jan_D for the prompt reply. That's exactly what I was looking for and your assistance is sincerely appreciated!

I hurried back here to post my thank you before further researching the large church's ships...
Good thing I did, Rick of Rick and Peg, as I am easily confused ;-)
Thank you!

The derivation of 'nave' is the same as that of 'naval'. Many old churches have what's called a "ship's keel ceiling", The ceiling is like an upturned ship. That's why the nave is called ... the nave.

A "nave" is also a big building usually located in an industrial estate used for warehouse or industry.
Yes, that's right. There is an albergue at Ferreira (just before Melide) on the Primitivo called A Nave. The owner told me it used to be a chicken farm and that 'nave' is the name for such an industrial building and for a cattle shed. I recommend A Nave highly, btw.

2015-2019 walked all or more than half of CF 7 times... CP recently cancelled by Covid 19!
Thank you for researching this.

Early on the page it says, perhaps confusing some "The piece wants to symbolize one of the twelve crosses of the consecration of the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, that could be found in the large church's ships." For ships substitute naves.
Thanks I was confused by a ship... nave makes sense.
