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.

  • The new Cathedral, which is a part of the old, has a plateresque façade, which is a Gothic that hints at works in Silver (plata in Spanish). Typical on the façade a bas-relief with an astronaut and a dragon with an ice cream: surprisingly everyone look.
