Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral

Two superimposed buildings.

The Catedral Nuestra Señora de la Asunción is located at the end of Pereda Gardens, next to what is now the post office building and opposite the Plaza Porticada. It is actually two buildings. Building began on the lower church, known as the Cripta del Cristo or the 'Crypt of Christ', in the 12th century. It is a wide, vaulted space but it is very low. The higher church was built over this building between the end of the 13th century and the 14th century. And after that came the cloister. The architectural complex has undergone several remodellings. The higher church had to be restored after the fire in 1941 that devastated the city's historic quarter.
