Thanks mate! I have been to Palma but in the days before I had a camera, so quite a while ago haha. The next time we take a holiday on Mallorca, a trip to Palma will be in order, not least for that beautiful cathedral.

Did you photograph the university as well?
Thanks, yes I agree. I was very impressed with the upkeep of so many of the buildings, looking clean and well maintained. I photographed certain buildings of the university but I don't think I actually went into the grounds.

So, moving further down towards the Cathedral, one emerges into the beautiful Plaza Anaya, fronted by the Palacio Anaya, the University of Salamanca and the Cathedral itself. Interestingly, this is known as the 'New' Cathedral which, together with the Old Cathedral, is one of the two cathedrals of Salamanca. It was constructed between the 16th in and 18th centuries in two styles: late Gothic and Baroque. Building began in 1513 and the cathedral was consecrated in 1733. It was commissioned by Ferdinand V of Castile of Spain. It was declared a national monument by royal decree in 1887. Although I didn't enter, the ornate works on the outside of the building are monumental and it must be up there with the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen.

Beyond the Cathedral, Calle Veracruz leads to a very pleasant square 'Plaza de la Merced' with extensive views over the Rio Tormes, northwest and southeast as well as the Puente Romano.

At this point, one can cross the Puente Romano - a pedestrianised bridge across the Rio Tormes, to the other side which is predominantly suburbs. The architecture is less interesting across the river but an attractive park has been landscaped and an open space in front of a church is there. A short walk along the river, with splendid views back to the cathedral emerges at the Puente Enrique Estevan, a busier road bridge, crossed back to the centre.
