Good and Evil
This is definitely one of the most beautiful and significant cathedrals in Ourense. It's the Gate of Paradise, whose construction was inspired by the Portico de la Gloria on the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. It lies on the western facade of the temple, up a monumental staircase. Built in the 13th century, it consists of three large double arches profusely decorated and painted, supported by columns and statues representing prophets and apostles. There are conflicting representations between good and evil, or the blessed and the damned. The northern arch is decorated with floral motifs, the southern arc symbolizes the final judgment, with Christ the Judge and the Archangel Michael.
