  • Work began on this beautiful church in 1902, following a project by the architect Eugenio Jiménez Corera, and it was finished after his death by Jesús Carrasco in 1914. It is located on Calle Goya, in the heart of the Salamanca district. With regard to the building, it was built in Neo-Gothic style over the longitudinal plan of three naves. What most attracts my attention is the huge 44-metre-high tower at its foot, crowned by a large iron spike upon which there is an image of the Virgin Mary. The building was complete with a rectory and a parish school, located to each side of the apse.
  • The cathedral is Amazing...you are feeling in heaven
  • Well preserved Catholic church.
  • A beautiful space for me to sit and reflect on the power of the universe and all who made this beautiful church.
  • Heard mass here in Spanish.
