by Joan58

The Catedral de Santa Maria la Menor, called also Catedral Primada de America, was built in 1521, but in 1502 Diego Columbus had already put the first stone. On its right the facade has a double decorated portal. The cathedral is made of golden coral and is a unique blend of styles with Romanesque arches and Gothc vaults.
Open daily 9am-4pm.
