The Santiago de Compostela organ was built between 1708 and 1712 by Manuel de la Viña. The two cases were designed by Antonio Alfonsín, with the intervention of Domingo de Andrade, one of the architects of the cathedral, and were built from 1705 to 1709 by Miguel de Romay. The organs have about 200 mute pipes on the façade.

In 1947 the organ was electrified by Organería Española and the old consoles were unfortunately removed. From 1977 to 1978 the organ was rebuilt by Mascioni inside the old cases.
