OverviewSegovia Cathedral is the last Gothic cathedral to be built in Spain. Fronting the historic Plaza Mayor in Segovia, it stands on the spot where Isabella I was proclaimed Queen of Castile. Affectionately called la dama de las catedrales, Segovia Cathedral has a supremely Gothic exterior combined with a surprisingly bare interior, but contains numerous treasures.
Know More about this tour
The walls and apse are lined with more than 20 chapels. The third chapel on your right from the entrance (Capilla de San Cosme y San Damian) has a lamentation group in wood by the 17th-century Baroque sculptor Gregorio Fernndez.
The Blessed Sacrament Chapel (created by the flamboyant Churriguera) features stained-glass windows, elaborately carved choir stalls, and 16th- and 17th-century paintings, including a reredos portraying the deposition of Christ from the cross by Juan de Juni.
Across from the entrance, on the southern transept, is a door opening into the late-Gothic cloister, which is older than the cathedral it and the elaborate door leading into it were transported from the old cathedral and are the work of architect Juan Guas.
Under the pavement immediately inside the cloisters are the tombs of Juan and Rodrigo Gil de Hontan; that these two lie in a space designed by Guas is appropriate, for the three men together dominated the last phase of the Gothic style in Spain.
Off the cloister, a small museum of religious art, installed partly in the first-floor chapter house, has a white-and-gold 17th-century ceiling, a late example of Mudjar artesonado work. The museum contains jewelry, paintings, and a collection of rare antique manuscripts.
