New Cathedral (Catedral Nueva), Salamanca

4.6
Given that its construction took two centuries, it only makes sense that New Cathedral (Catedral Nueva) displays two distinct architectural styles: late Gothic and Baroque. Ferdinand V commissioned this cathedral to blend with the more decidedly Gothic Old Cathedral in Salamanca. Look around for cracks resulting from the Lisbon earthquake of 1755. Be sure to walk around the interior roof balcony.

  • Hard to say what is great. It is likely the new Gothic Cathedral. Both cathedrals together can be seen but as they are also structurally connected, I would see the whole thing as an ensemble. To do this, you can really only say: extraordinary and impressive. Salamanca is this called the Golden City to the right.

  • Cathedrals, both new and old, are very nice. The entrance cost US $ 5 (price of students, but they were not asked to the card). At the entrance we were given an audio guide where to put a track, and I could hear a man with a very calm voice and a celestial tune talk about Saints, martyrs and virgins, and words which has said the Pope, a Bishop or a religious. BUT NOTHING ABOUT THE ARCHITECTURE! ONLY SAINTS! SAINTS AND VIRGINS! The 12 track, I stopped listening to him. If you like cathedrals, I recommend it. But it is not worth paying to listen hear a man talk about religion.

  • Both cathedrals are accessible from the new Cathedral. It costs 5 euros and the visit can last for half an hour. Recommended as a place of interest if you visit Salamanca...
