The most breathtaking gold pannels ever. They are 53 in total (did not ount it- guidebook info). The Virgen de la Vega, the city's patroness stand right there in the middle, made of Limoges china (Wow!). do not miss it, it's acess is through the Catedral Nueva (New Cathedral).

This is a beautiful cathedral. My review is going to be the same for the New Cathedral, as they are the same building and connected. Be sure to spend the extra money and hike up the stairs to the tower for fantastic roof top views.

You are likely to miss the old cathedral. The entrance is from the New Cathedral and it costs four euros or so to enter but it is worth it. The first draw are the frescoes. Spectacular! Especially the area to the right of the altar. Speaking of which, that is the second draw. Incredible! But continue out the door to the right to the cloisters and you will have a third treat. The chapels lining the cloisters are incredible. That combination made the old cathedral my favorite destination in all of Salamanca.

We visited the cathedral and it is lovely. If you have time to walk around and visit, it is worth a stop. Not worth a separate trip.

Simply stunning - a must see if you are within an hour or so of Salamanca. The building itself is so impressive set amidst a beautiful historic town.
