Santiago de Compostela is known in the sports world for its basketball youth academy and its reference team, the Monbús Obradoiro. Basketball is for everyone in this city, even those who wear cassock. So I could see it in one of the new viral videos that depart from the Galician capital.
In the video, recorded in the cloister of the Colegio Mayor de San Agustín, three figures appear, including a priest playing basketball. The most striking thing about the scene is precisely this cleric, who deftly manages to dodge his opponents and score a basket. The video has been a sensation on Twitter, which has been filled with jokes and compliments to the priest.
The Colegio Mayor de San Agustín is one of the three colleges that exist on the campus of the University of Santiago de Compostela. It is one of the emblems of the historic center of the city, located in the former convent of San Agustín, a 17th century building. It was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1964and has outstanding alumni in its ranks such as Miguel Santalices, president of the Galician Parliament.
