Cruceiro. Pontevedra.

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Un Cruceiro es un monumento de piedra coronado por una cruz sobre un fuste que se asienta sobre una base escalonada. La altura del cruceiro puede superar los cinco metros. La base y el fuste en muchas ocasiones presentan motivos alegóricos extraídos de la narraciones bíblicas. En la cruz lo más característico es la diferencia entre el anverso y el reverso. El primero suele mostrar a Cristo crucificado, a veces acompañado con la virgen o con otros personajes. Los cruceiros rememoran la crucifixión, así como, santifican el lugar donde se asientan, combaten el mal. De ahí su ubicación tanto en las entradas de los pueblos y aldeas como en los puntos de gran importancia simbólica: cruces de caminos, cumbres, riberas. Los cruceiros no son exclusivos de Galicia, pero la dispersión y cantidad de pueblos en el rural gallego explica su extraordinaria diseminación.
