Salamanca's Cathedrals


Description

When we talk about Salamanca Cathedral, we are actually talking about two cathedrals in one. Firstly, there is the new cathedral and then the old cathedral. The Old Cathedral attracts the eye with its beautiful tombs of the bishops and members of the nobility found inside. The Chancel Altarpiece is a highlight showing the Story of Salvation presided over by Our Lady of the Meadows, patron saint of Salamanca. Other standout rooms in the old cathedral are the Gallo Tower and the Chapel of San Martín (also known as the chapel of oil or ‘aceite'). The New Cathedral is located next to the old one and has 90 stain glass windows from Flanders. Take a look at the Portada de Ramos or Palm Doorway showing Jesus entering Jerusalem. Once inside the cathedral, you will see the statue of Our Lady that is worshipped, Our Lady of the Assumption.
