It is a Gothic work of art of real beauty, with stylish spires and towers.
It was built in Romanesque style for Alfonso VI. The Gothic cathedral that stands today was built by Fernando III and Bishop Don Mauricio. The stylish towers are located on both sides of the main entrance. The prettiest entrance is Sarmental, built at the end of a staircase and where the statue of the Bishop in the mullion can be found. At the end of the cathedral is the chapel of Condestables with an octagonal ground plan. At the foot of the main cupola is the Papamoscas. Another work of art of utmost interest is the golden staircase by Gil de Siloé.
