A very special 5-minute tour of two of the most beautiful Iberian cathedrals.
One of the epicenters of the intellectual Iberian renaissance, and most likely the cradle of the great Spanish literature of the Siglo De Oro (“Golden Age”), Salamanca has not one but two majestic cathedrals: the Old and the New, connected like conjoined twins. The Old Cathedral, built in Romanesque and Gothic styles, took two centuries (from the 12th to the 14th). The New Cathedral, constructed between the 16th and 18th centuries, is an exceptional sample of both Late Gothic and Iberian Baroque architecture.
In the video below, shared on YouTube by Tech Travel Lifestyle, we can admire both cathedrals and the legendary city of Salamanca – and its famous university — from a unique point of view.
