Plasencia Cathedral, Spain (In fact two cathedrals, the old Romanesque XIII and XIV century (which in turn are two buildings overlapping in time and in style) and the new Gothic style begun in the fifteenth century and unfinished in Renaissance style the sixteenth century. The technique was to go removing the old while building the new one, but in the sixteenth century to finish the construction funds, the cathedral was left as seen today, overlapping the new over the old.)

The choir stalls in Astorga Cathedral are very impressive along with the rest of the cathedral.

Astorga has a splendid cathedral, Caravaggio, indeed.

Thank you.

In Spain there are over 90 cathedrals ... We still have time to marvel

Thanks, TimothyR


ZAMORA CATHEDRAL, SPAIN (The oldest and the smallest of the cathedrals in Castile and León. An authentic Romanesque gem despite the later additions).

Hagia Sophia(Ἁγία Σοφία); The Church of Holy Wisdom is a former Greek cathedral. It served as an Eastern Orthodox Cathedral and the seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935 in modern day Turkey. Photos are not mine but I don't even know where I got them from.
