The famous Byzantine copula that can be seen from all over the city, is one of the most original creations of Hispanic medieval art and would influence the style of the Colegiata de Toro(Zamora) and the Catedral Vieja de Salamanca. This famous dome built with sheets of stone is one of the most breathtaking constructions of Spanish and European Romanism and has oriental influences.

The synchronism of styles (Romanesque, Byzantine and Herreran) of the Cathedral is evident in every corner. Named the Perla del Duero, this Romanesque building was built in the 12th century and preserves a Romanesque door of great importance , the Puerta del Obispo, which has impressive sculptured ornaments

It was founded by Alfonso VII and consecrated in 1175 after 25 years work. The church is dedicated to the Transfiguration and has an important cathedral museum.
