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.

  • This cathedral is huge and lovely. Very well looked after and a recommendable visit when you are in the area. 
  • It is the image of the city of Salamanca. It certainly can not miss visiting this Cathedral because by its grandeur does not pass by unnoticed. Late Gothic expression Spanish expresses both outside and inside all its grandeur and greatness of Spain at that time. The construction lasted almost 2 centuries, so the external language may seem different from the inside where the Gothic style is more markedly so. Interesting visit with audio guide that lets you experience every corner in its details. Beautiful pointed arches and shells in General. Discrete switching to old cathedral which remains attached and has not been incorporated into the new one. The visit must be completed with the climb to the Tower/Steeple which offers a great view of the city. Beautiful also the surrounding the Cathedral square everything extremely well taken care of.

  • The 4.75 euros that costs the entry it are worth. With the entry you get an adudioguia and at the moment when you connect you forget abroad. Essential
