On Santiago street, as well as the confectioner of As Nisas, specialised in macaroons, iced buns and Jewish sweets, thee lies the Church of St. James, a fine example of Galician romanesque from the 12th century in its transition to the Gothic, with a Baroque tower, which was the oldest parish church in Ribadavia. The whole building stands out for its decorative and artistic richness as well as the arches and the façade of noble proportions with a beautiful rose window with 24 holes.

Inside, there are numerous Baroque images to behold of great artistic value and worthy of special mention is a stone 14th century Seated St. James from the Master Mateo school.
