Cruceiro de Hío

Sculpture in Ría de Vigo

The famous Cruceiro de Hío (so famous it has its own car park) stands outside the Romanesque San Andrés de Hío church. Sculpted in the 1870s by Ignacio Cerviño, its delicate, detailed carvings narrate key passages of Christian teachings, from Adam and Eve to the taking down of Christ from the cross.
