The New Cathedral is one of the two Cathedrals located in the UNESCO World Heritage listed
Old City of Salamanca
, Spain. It was constructed between the 16th and 18th centuries in two
styles, late Gothic and Baroque. Building began in 1513 and the cathedral was consecrated in
1733. It was declared a national monument of Spain by royal decree in 1887.

Among the ornate carvings on the façade is the incongruous likeness of an astronaut floating in space,
which was added by an artist during restoration work in 1992 as a symbol of the 20th century.

    The colour and ornate design of this beautiful organ in the New Cathedral in Salamanca, Spain almost took my breath away. I have searched for hours on the internet and have not been able to locate any information on, or images of this magnificent structure.
    If anyone can enlighten me, I would be very grateful.

    I would love to hear that organ being played. I can imagine the awesome sounds it must produce. Cool shot Trish.

  • Thank you very much Bob !
    We didn’t hear this one, but did hear one in Cathédrale Saint-Vincent de Viviers, which if I remember correctly, dates back to the 11th century and is the smallest Cathedral in Europe.
