The Angel from the cathedral of Oporto possibly belonged to an Annunciation group and was made for either the façade or the interior of the building and is one of the most interesting Romanesque figurative sculptures, so rare in Portugal. The hieratic and frontal posture of this angel combined with the powerful stylisation of the characteristics – common in the European Romanesque language – reveal French influences which superimposed local traditions of Visigothic and Mozarabic origin.
