Catedral Nueva & Catedral Vieja

You are here

These two cathedrals stand right next to each other. The Catedral Nueva, or "new cathedral," is larger than the "old cathedral," and is one of the most beautiful Spanish gothic structures. The architects created the "Puerta de Ramos," the entrance for the common people, and a special entrance was for the Spanish king.
"The Plaza de Anaya is where most IES Abroad students have their University classes. It's right in the shadow of Salamanca's incredible cathedrals (we have 2!) and is a great place to hang out with friends and people-watch on sunny afternoons." -Casey F., Bowdoin College
