The refined Lady of the Cathedrals
Cathedral of Segovia
It boasts a beautiful, radiant Baroque design, with wonderful altarpieces and one of the highest towers in Spain. It is known as the Lady of the Cathedrals because of is height and the depth of its naves.
The construction of this late Gothic church began in 1525, thanks to the generous collaboration of the people of Segovia and the initiative of the Gil de Hontañón family. Elegant and luminous, the cathedral stands on the site of the original Romanesque structure, which once stood before the Alcázar, but was destroyed during the wars of the Comunidades.
The interior is surprisingly stylised, with elegant proportions and an extraordinary refinement. The structure is supported by elegant pillars. Also noteworthy is the wide variety of altarpieces and the beautiful Capilla del Santísimo Sacramento.
