La Seo Cathedral, also known as el Catedral del Salvador, stands on what has been a religious site for thousands of years. There was a Roman temple here, believed to be devoted to Augustus. During the Moorish occupation this was where the main mosque stood. After the Reconquest the mosque was destroyed and a cathedral erected. It was originally Romanesque in style, although further additions were made in various architectural styles including Gothic, Renaissance, baroque and neoclassical. You'll be impressed by its interior that's full of natural light, by the outstanding 15th-century Gothic altarpiece and by St. Bernard's chapel, where Archbishop Hernando de Aragon body lies. There's a magnificent Mudejar wall outside as well.
