Photographer's Note

This is a detail of the chapel of Santa Orosia in the Cathedral of Jaca. This Chapel was built in baroque style and remodeled in the late 17th and early 18th centuries and with a churrigueresque-style polychrome wooden altarpiece from the 18th century. rnAccording to tradition, Santa Orosia was born in Bohemia in the ninth century and when she was fifteen years old she came to Aragon to marry the Aragonese king. With Orosia also came his uncle Bishop Acisclo and his brother the infant Cornelius. In Aragon, Orosia was kidnapped by Muslims and given her refusal to abdicate her faith, she was martyred and murdered along with her uncle and her brother. Two hundred years later a shepherd from the zone by divine inspiration found his remains, leaving his head in the town of Yebra de Basa and the rest of the body was transferred to the Cathedral of Jaca. Her remains are in an urn under the table of the High Altar.
