Chapel of Saint Magdalene

The Capela da Madalena in Arzúa, originally part of a 14th century Augustinian monastery founded to assist pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago, has endured over the centuries as a token of history and devotion. Although the monastery was abandoned in 1692, the chapel was maintained and has undergone several renovations over the years. It is notable for its Gothic triumphal arch and the sarcophagi of Alonso Muñiz and Iván Goiráldez inside. Currently, the chapel has been used as a cultural hall since 2006, housing exhibitions and preserving significant elements of its past, such as two tombs of recumbent statues.
