The best cathedrals in Spain
The amount of wonders around Spain is incredible. It would be impossible to visit them all in one day. In this list I will focus on the built cathedrals. I've put some of the ones I've visited and the ones that seem most interesting to me. Still, there are many more that I leave, but obviously I will not fill a list with so many cathedrals. There are those that I consider to be prettier:
The Almudena Cathedral is a modern temple that few people from Madrid had visited until the wedding of the Princes of Spain. However, its neo-gothic and neo-Romanesque spaces are pleasant.
The most visited of the cathedrals of Catalonia is a building begun in 1298 and completed in 1420. It has three large ships of similar height, somewhat lower lateral. The triforium is replaced by small windows.
Oviedo's is one of those few cathedrals in Spain that have a pre-Romanesque origin. It retains important remains of Asturian art, also Romanesque and of course, Gothic. A luxury for the lover of history.
Despite the reforms and amputations, the Zamora Cathedral has some of the most important elements of Spanish Romanesque, such as the facade of the Bishop's Gate and its gallon dome.
Queen of the cathedrals of Galicia and final destination of the Camino de Santiago, the cathedral of Santiago is a Romanesque microcosm that must be observed in detail. The crowds that huddle in it do not always allow it.
The New Cathedral of Salamanca is one of the latest Gothic temples built in Spain. The interior is sublime thanks to the height and diafanity of the spaces. Externally it has covers full of sculptures.
Without a doubt that of Toledo is the most important of the cathedrals of Castilla La Mancha and one of the best in all of Spain. It is a temple belonging to French Gothic, but with many Hispanic casticisms.
Cathedral of Sevilla
The Cathedral of Seville is the Gothic queen of the cathedrals of Andalusia. Work of the fifteenth century, it is a majestic temple of five large ships. It is one of the greatest temples of Christianity.
Together with León, Burgos Cathedral is the best known in Castilla y León and in all of Spain. True banner of the powerful city of Burgos, "Cabeza de Castilla" throughout the centuries.
The Cathedral of León is the most "gothic" in Spain. Its builders summarized most of the advances of the great French Gothic. The bright color of its stained glass windows are a delight for the eye and the soul.
Jaén Cathedral is a true jewel of the Andalusian and Spanish Renaissance, with outstanding baroque elements, built between the 16th and 17th centuries, according to the project of the architect Andrés de Vandelvira.
