Take a tour of Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela cuts a distinctive silhouette across the city's rooftops. The front is marked by two towers, one each for St. James's father and mother. Each of the nearly 250 ft., Baroque towers contains open-air bells. Over the central portal is St. James and two disciples, whose bodies are said to be here. The massive pipe organ hanging over the nave is nothing short of extraordinary. The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, over 900 years old, is certainly one of Spain's masterpieces.
