Catedral Vieja (Old Cathedral) is one of the two cathedrals in the city of Salamanca. The other one is the Catedral Nueva (New Cathedral). When the New Cathedral was built, the Old Cathedral was supposed to be destroyed but they changed their mind and it was left intact for cultural purposes.


The Old Cathedral was founded in the 12th century and it was built in a Romanesque style with some aspects of Gothic style. It was completed until the 14th century.
