Seen from the Plaza de la Universidad (University Square), the south-east Transept and south tower of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Holy Assumption (Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción), better known as Valladolid Cathedral, a Roman Catholic Cathedral in the city of Valladolid, north-central Spain.

The tower on the side of the vestry, crowned with a 12m high statue of the Corazón de Jesús (Heart of Jesus), is an 1885 replacement for the original tower which was badly damaged in the Lisbon earthquake (1755), and which finally fell down in 1841.

Designed by Juan de Herrera, the Cathedral was consecrated in 1668 but remains unfinished.

    Another great piece of architecture Tom. What a shame it’s not finished.

  • Thank you Christine, it was started when Villadolid was the de-facto Capitol of Spain and was planned to be the largest Cathedral in Spain, however, when the Capitol was moved to Madrid, funding was cut drastically and so, it will never be finished according to the original plans …
