Zamora information

Cathedral of Zamora

Opening hours: From 10:00 to 13:00 and from 17:00 to 20:00. Closed on Mondays.

The building, built between 1151 and 1174 in a Romanesque style, is one of Spain's finest examples. Elements were added to the cathedral over the years and include Gothic features (apses and sanctuary) and Herrera style features (cloister).

The cathedral has three naves, a transept and three semicircular apses. Its dome base with 16 double arches supports the scaled dome. That is the symbol of the city of Zamora and is what differentiates it from other cathedrals.

Inside, the cathedral house a large variety of works of art, including the choir stalls, a figure of Christ and an image of the Virgin Mary. The two tympanums of the Bishop's Doorway are adorned by embossed images: one depicting the Virgin Mary with Child and the other with the apostles John and Peter.
