La Catedral de Salamanca

As I’ve previously written, I visited the city of Salamanca in Spain (around 2 hours away from Madrid on a high speed Renfe train), and whilst I was there, I visited the cathedral. I was going to briefly write about this in my travel post, but I decided that the cathedral was just too beautiful to brush over in a general post. So this post is dedicated to the stained glass windows, the gold plated chapels and the intricate details of the dome. No flash photography is allowed inside the cathedral, but photos without flash are permitted and so below I have included some that I took during my visit. I haven’t visited many cathedrals or churches, but I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was! The ticket was around €4, discounts for retirees, students and young children are available, and I was given a handset which explained each area of cathedral in detail, in English (many languages are available). I don’t believe that my photographs capture the true beauty of the cathedral, so if you ever happen to find yourself in Salamanca or nearby, you should definitely pay a visit.
