Geocache Description:


GALEGO

IGREXA SANTA MARÍA DO PORRIÑO

Considerada unha icona do Porriño, a igrexa de Santa María é a receptora da advocación da Inmaculada Concepción, sen esquecer que a súa importancia fai que sexa parroquial. Porén, a pesar de ser un elemento característico do Porriño, o templo non sempre formou parte da súa cultura.

Tanto os rexistros como as probas arquitectónicas revelan que nese mesmo lugar existía antes outro edificio, que estaba dedicado a San Xurxo. Aínda que non é posible saber cando se modificou a invocación.

A igrexa foi construída a mediados do século XVI, e o seu estilo é austero. Consta dunha nave central e dúas laterais, nas que podemos atopar imaxes de varios santos e da Virxe.

O CACHÉ: magnético. Atención que é unha zona concurrida de muggles.

SANTA MARIA DO PORRIÑO CHURCH

Considered an icon of Porriño, the church of Santa María is the recipient of the invocation of the Immaculate Conception, without forgetting that its importance makes it a parish. However, despite being a characteristic element of Porriño, the temple was not always part of its culture.

Both the records and the architectural tests reveal that another building previously existed in the same place, which was dedicated to San Jorge. Although it is not possible to know when the invocation was modified.

The church was built in the middle of the 16th century, and its style is austere. It consists of a central nave and two side ones, in which we can find images of several saints and the Virgin.

 

THE CACHE: magnetic. Attention, it is a busy area of ​​Muggles.
