GOTHIC STONE CROSS AND CHAPEL OF SAN ROQUE IN MELIDE
The current chapel of San Roque was built in 1949 with materials from the demolished churches of San pedro and San Roque. The main doorway is one of the most beautiful of Galician medieval art.
Next to the church is a Gothic stone cross, the oldest in Galicia and the most emblematic of the French Camino. On the obverse there is a crucified Christ in a sitting position and showing the wounds in his hand; on the reverse there is a representation of the Calvary.
