Catedral Nueva - New Cathedral, Salamanca: 26 reviews and 75 photos
One of the most interesting architectural features Salamanca has to offer are its two cathedrals. Unlike what usually happens, the newer church wasn't built over or at the place of a former building, so that today tourists can visit both the catedral vieja (old cathedral) and the catedral nueva (new cathedral). The former dates of the 12th century and was built in Romanesque style, whereas the latter was built in the 16th and 18th centuries in Gothic and Baroque styles.
The bodies of the two cathedrals meet in what is called el patio chico (see the second pic).
Let's have a closer look at some portals of the catedral nueva in the next tip.
