The construction of the Cathedral began in 1471, rebuilding the old Romanesque cathedral on the same site, the building was not completed until the eighteenth century, so we can find different styles of Spanish religious art combined in the same building.
The Renaissance façade of the Bishops by Rodrigo Gil de Hontañón are of particular note, the main façade by Pablo Antonio Ruiz from the Baroque era, built at the beginning from the 18th century and the astonishing façade on which five scenes of the life of Christ are sculpted; the main altarpiece, masterpiece of Gaspar Becerra of the sixteenth century, which narrates the life of the Virgin; among the outstandng imagery are the Virgin of the Majesty carving from the 12th century with Byzantine influences and the Immaculate of Gregorio Fernandez from the sixteenth century; and from the same time the choir stalls can be admired, or the Hispano-Flemish altarpiece of San Miguel.
