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.

  • Salamanca is home to two cathedrals: the old one, the 'Catedral vieja', Romanesque, dating back to the middle of the century. 12th, and the 'Catedral nueva', the new, Gothic, built in the 16th century. next to the left aisle of the Old Cathedral. The new Cathedral is an imposing, noteworthy building to visit absolutely outside and inside. Its access portal is a continuous destination for visitors enchanted by a curiosity, the figurine of an astronaut who seems to have Asian somatic traits, well inserted in the frieze that decorates and surrounds the access door, the Puerta de Ramos. It seems that the carving was added, I would say masterfully, on the occasion of a restoration done at the Cathedral in 1992 by a mason.
