Monument since June, 1931.

This Gothic temple is considered to be the town’s most important landmark and is also one of the must-see buildings in the entire province. In this building you will see all sorts of architectonical styles ranging from primitive Romanesque to 18th-century Baroque as well as other styles left behind by artists who passed by this town. The latest additions are from the 18th century although the cathedral was built over a primitive 13th-century Romanesque temple, reason why there are so many interesting elements to see such as the main façade and its Renaissance-style door, its high tower, the altarpiece and the Gothic marble pulpit in the major chapel. Other works of art are the frescos in the dome, the Immaculate figure on the central altar which was brought from Rome, the Neoclassical sacristy, the Flamboyant Gothic cloister, beautiful stain glass windows on the upper part of the cathedral or the tomb of San Pedro de Osma, which is considered a masterpiece of funerary art. Inside the cathedral, there is also a museum with paintings and sculptures, as well as valuable codices such as the one known as “El Beato”.
