Iglesia convento de San Francisco
Northern Spain

El Convento de San Francisco de Valdediós fue fundado por San Francisco de Asís en su visita a Santiago de Compostela en 1214, en el lugar de Val de Dios. El terreno fue comprado a los monjes de San Martiño Pinario por la simbólica renta anual de una cesta de truchas. La fundación, envuelta en leyendas, está descrita en una inscripción en el muro del actual convento. Se dice allí que San Francisco encargó su construcción a un carbonero llamado Cotolay, que encontró milagrosamente un tesoro con el que pudo costear esta obra. Del edificio original sólo se conservan cinco arcos góticos en el claustro y el sepulcro de Cotolay. El actual templo barroco se construyó entre 1742 y 1749 y es de gran simplicidad y pureza formal. Posteriormente una reforma neoclásica retocó la fachada, que cuenta con una imagen de San Francisco realizada por el escultor Ferreiro.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
