Santa María La Mayor Cathedral

Santa María La Mayor Cathedral Review

This cathedral looms large and casts an enormous shadow in the evening throughout the adjacent Plaza Mayor. Built during the Gothic era in the 12th century, atop ruins of a conquered mosque, the cathedral's massive triptych facade has lost all its Gothic origins thanks to the Renaissance. Inside are the tombs of the cathedral's founding bishops, an impressive portico of the Apostles, and a Byzantine reliquary.
