    St Paio’s image

The Church of San Paio de Buscás is a building of Romanesque origin that underwent renovations in the 18th and 19th centuries. This church is located on the Camino Inglés, a pilgrimage route that leads to Santiago de Compostela. Its architecture stands out for a façade with a door framed by columns and capitals decorated with plant motifs. Above the entrance stands a belfry with bells, topped by a pediment with a wrought iron cross.

On the east wall of the chancel, a figure of San Paio, a Spanish martyr child of the 10th century, stands out in a window decorated with architectural details and a lobed cross. Pilgrims use to take a photo here. The church, located on the Camino Inglés, is an important reference point and a place of devotion for pilgrims who travel this route to Santiago de Compostela.
