Stunning architecture- see my post on the Old Cathedral. What a definite must see is the bell tower/roof top extra at 3.75 euro. Not a climb for the fainthearted but totally worth it if you can climb serial stone staircases and want a panoramic view of Salamanca on the way, along with a walk around the roof tops closer to...

This church is actually attached to the old church. Both are close to the University, making for easy walking from one location to the other.

Spanish cathedrals have a tendency to be enormous, but also very skillfully built. And beautiful. Audioguide is very helpful

Close to the ancient cathedral. Very interesting to compare the different styles of both of them. Also an essential visit.

A giant building, a stone gray lace, something breathtaking. Noteworthy: chapel, choir, tavanele.Si for fun searching the main gateway in two things cathedral builders restorers jokingly added: ice cream cone and little alien. I have not found alien than ... A great work!

The old centre of Salamanca is simply amazing, with many medieval buildings competing with eachother for the eye of the visitor. One of the most imposing is without any doubt the cathedral. It's worth a visit, but in the end, it probably isn't so different from many other big churches and cathedrals in Spain.

Salamanca’s ‘new’ Roman Catholic Cathedral was built between the 16 & 18th centuries, primarily in Gothic style, to blend with the old Cathedral. Unique and contrary to the times, the old wasn’t demolished to make way for the new, but instead a wall of the new leans on the old. This meant the old cathedral had to be reinforced, and... More
