Fisterra´s Holy Christ

Starting the 14th Century, Fisterra´s Christ legend said that some fishermen saw in the middle of a storm how a box was thrown into the sea from a boat.

Once the box reached land, sailors opened the box and they discovered Fisterra´s  Christ image. Since this moment, this image became famous between religious people, who visit Fisterra´s holy Christ, mostly during the Holy Week.

This image has a impressive realism.
