Sepulchre of Pedro Froilaz
After his death in 1126, he was buried in the Cathedral of Santiago and, eight centuries later, in 1926, his remains were transferred to the Royal Pantheon. Maximino Magariños was given the task to make a new sepulchre with a lying image of the character, represented as an elderly man dressed in armor, carrying a sword in his hands and with a whippet at his feet. In the inscription on the front he is identified as “tutor” of the monarch due to his work.
