As we told before, what characterizes Redondela are its railway viaducts that dominate the sky. Both of them were built in the 19th century: but the viaduct of Madrid is older than the viaduct of Pontevedra. The viaduct of Madrid combines wrought iron with traditional stonework.
Redondela’s sky is presided over by two great railway viaducts built in the 19th century: the Viaduct of Madrid and the Pontevedra Viaduct. For decades it is been told in Redondela that one of the subcontractors of this work, Pedro Floriani, threw himself from the viaduct when he was told he would not get paid for the work because it was not well done and that the viaducts could not enter into service. However, in 1876 the viaduct of Madrid inaugurated and trains could circulate. The viaduct of Pontevedra was inaugurated a few years later, in 1884.
In addition to those viaducts, in Redondela there are a lot of heritage civil and religious features. Among them, the pazos and the parochial churches stand out; also the granaries or the cruceiros.
The municipality of Redondela is composed by 13 parishes (Redondela is one of them) and there is at least one church in each parish. Among all of them, it is important to highlight the parish church of Santiago de Redondela, in Redondela and the baroque church of Cedeira, in Cedeira.
