Dolores church

We continue up Méndez Núñez until we get to DOLORES CHURCH.

Located in Amboage square, it was designed in 1771 and built by the congregation of the same name.

It is a small church and is notable for its rigorous composition, severity and beautiful proportions. It has a single nave on a floor plan in a Latin cross shape. Above the door there is a round oculus with a small stained glass window. In its small interior there are small interesting statues which play a leading role in Ferrol´s Easter week which has recently been declared of national interest. The statues include la Dolorosa, a crucified Christ and Jesus the Nazarene. The current towers, one of which contains a clock, were added in 1854.
