Construction started in 1160, under king Alfonso VIII. This romanesque-gothic church has three naves and a transept topped off by a cupola. The north front represents one of the most important artistic contributions of 12th-13th-century romanesque.

Two different stages can be distinguished: one starts in 1160, and is characterised by the use of light limestone; and the other started in 1240, and features red stone and less developed Romanesque elements.

The church contains important Gothic sculptures located in the pillars. The Portada de la Majestad (Front of Majesty), started in the Romanesque style under Fernando III, was completed with an imposing Gothic archivolt under Sancho IV.

The museum of the Collegiate, located in the sacristy, preserves important works of art, as an ivory and of tortoiseshell Calvary of Italian style or an alabaster relief depicting the Adoration of the Magi.
