The Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar (better known simply as El Pillar) is a Roman Catholic church and one of two major cathedrals in the heart of the city.It is an immense baroque structure with no fewer than 11 tiled cupolas.
And an important pilgrimage site, thanks to an ancient pillar said to have been given by the Virgin Mary to Saint James on this very spot.
