MADRID (AP) — Officials say a landmark 12th century Christian sanctuary in the fjord-like coastal region of northwest Spain has been gutted by fire.
Alberto Nunez Feijoo, president of the regional government of Galicia, said in a statement that a fire at the ancient Sanctuary of the Virgin of the Boat in Muxia may have been caused by a lightning strike of a nearby electricity transformer.
Local press reports say firefighters were able to save only part of a renowned altarpiece and feared the chapel's dome may collapse after suffering serious fire damage.
Galicia has for centuries been a magnet for Christian pilgrimage.
