Despite the glory of the main Catholic Shrine in Spain, the Pilar Basilica, La SEO Cathedral has the status of a UNESCO world heritage site. However, it is forbidden to photograph this world heritage. Why? Riddle. And there is something to shoot. The construction of the Cathedral began in the XII, and ended already in the XVIII century, so you can lead tours of students of architectural universities about the change of architectural styles. Romanesque style is the most difficult to find it is outside in the lower part of the apses. 14th-century Gothic in the funerary chapel of Saint Michael, the main altar by Pere Johan and in the naves. Mudejar is the apse, parish and cimborrio of the Cathedral, which was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 2001 as part of the Aragon Mudejar ensemble. Mudejar is better represented in the so-called Parocchieta-a chapel that was built for his relics by the powerful Archbishop of Zaragoza de Luna. This is the outer Chapel of St. Bernard from the alabaster chapel of the Archangels and the chapel of St. Peter Arbues created during the Renaissance. And finally Baroque! This is everything else. A long row of chapels (28 in total) dedicated to numerous saints of the Catholic Church with rich and noble dead in almost every one. And you will be followed by the watchful eye of the Keeper of the relics, making sure that the click of the smartphone shutter does not disturb the eternal peace of the inhabitants.

My original purpose for visiting La Seo was to see its tapestry collection. However, I was most impressed with the unique blend of architectural styles that creates this 700 year-old church (Romanesque, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, Baroque). The tall bell tower is most certainly reminiscent of a mosque’ minaret. Inside, numerous chapels line the sides. Many feature exceptional wood and stone carvings, paintings, mosaics, sculptures and relics. The impressive choir section features exquisitely carved chairs and a massive organ. There are plenty of places to sit for quiet contemplation. No photos are permitted inside. The admission fee includes the upstairs tapestry museum which should not be missed.

This was my favourite place in Zaragoza. The Cathedral is beautiful. There is plenty of information in English, and choral background music which makes it a very quiet and relaxing place to spend time in.
