Entrance to the chapel at Santiago de Compostela, (For more information about the chapel see Paradox Place).

This portal bears strong similarities with two portals in Durham, both constructed under the patronage of Hugh Le Puiset in the late 12th century, one in Durham Castle (previous image) and the other in the cloister of Durham Cathedral (next image).
