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.

    The new Cathedral of Salamanca is, together with the old cathedral one of the cathedrals of Salamanca in Castilla y León in Spain. It is the seat of the diocese of Salamanca. Worth a visit, not only to the Cathedral, as the surrounding area. Very pretty, nice terraces, on a day of scorching heat. Dates back to the 19th century. XVI-XVIII, in a remarkable state of preservation.

    Not to be missed and you can't stay without visiting the city ex-libeis. It seems that everything about your back and I might add that is a well-deserved status. Be sure to visit
