The Seo, or Cathedral of San Salvador


Description

It is the most significant and treasured sites in all of Aragon, as well as Saragossa's first Christian cathedral. It was built to face north instead of east, as was the tradition of the time, so as not to coincide with the direction of Muslim prayers towards Mecca. Outside the cathedral, you can see the finest example of Saragossa-style Mudejar art: the exterior wall of St. Michael's chapel. It is located along one side of the cathedral and forms part of the parish chapel of San Miguel Arcángel. The ceiling of San Miguel chapel is adorned with golden wood. And be sure to visit the cathedral's Tapestry Museum, home to one of the finest collections of Flemish tapestries.
