Igrexa de San Francisco

Church in Betanzos

This 14th-century Gothic church contains many carved-stone sepulchres of Galician nobility. Don't miss the sepulchre of Fernán Pérez de Andrade 'O Boo' (The Good), the local strongman who had the town's main three churches built, at the west end. It rests on a stone bear and boar (the latter being the Andrade family emblem).
