New Cathedral (Catedral Nueva), Salamanca

(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Close to the ancient cathedral. Very interesting to compare the different styles of both of them. Also an essential visit. 
  • Magnificent cathedral, of extraordinary beauty. The audio tour is free but extremely boring, there are about 20 chapels and describe you each one of the less interesting way possible, "canvas of the year such painted by foo" does not enter into detail or goes beyond that, became very heavy.

  • Is a visit forced of do, with the same input is runs the Cathedral new and it Cathedral old, there are audio guide in several languages, the tour of makes in a hour and half, is very interesting, both in history, as in architecture and religiously for them Catholic. All the chapels which are some parts can be observed in the visit to the old cathedral, it is a place worth visiting.
