Bilbao Cathedral


Bilbao, Spain (ES)
Santiago Cathedral (Spanish: Catedral de Santiago; Basque: Donejakue Katedrala) is a Catholic Cathedral in the city of Bilbao that was officially declared cathedral in 1950. Its origins probably date to well before the foundation of the city in 1300, when Bilbao was little more than a small enclave of fishermen.

The temple is consecrated in honor of the apostle Saint James the Great (Santiago in Spanish), by virtue of being a point of transit for the pilgrims that followed the Northern branch of the Way of Saint James.
