Astorga Cathedral

The Cathedral of Santa María was built on top of a Romanesque church and was not finished until the 17th century during which its two towers were completed.

Its structure is late Gothic, with some Baroque and Plateresque such as the main entrance and two of its towers. The main altarpiece is chamfered, a decision made by its designer, Gaspar Becerra, to make it into an apse. The main entrance is florid Gothic and is very striking, with an abundance of plant and angelic adornments. The doors of the vestry are by Gil de Hontañón. Inside sculptures of great value such as an Inmaculada by Gregorio Fernández can also be found. In one of the rooms that can be accessed through the cloister is the Diocesan Museum.
