Ordoño II built the temple on the site of his royal palace as a show of gratitude for defeating the Arabs at the battle of San Esteban de Gormaz. His remains were buried there. Alfonso V was crowned in this building in 999. The infanta Doña Urraca, daughter of Fernando I, favoured the construction of a new building in brick and masonry, with three naves finished with apses. The stained glass in the Cathedral is from the 13th through the 20th century and cover 1,200 square metres of surface area. Under its plan there are Roman hippocausts which made it difficult to set the foundations of the pillars and caused water filtration.
