New Cathedral (Catedral Nueva), Salamanca

(4.6/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • Great work of art. Impressive, full of details. You can climb the towers. Rico Interior, but in some places in need of maintenance.
