ABOUT THIS IMAGE
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.

Information from tour guide and personal observation.
