An example of Romanesque art

It is one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in Spain.

The cathedral was built between 1151 and 1174 in a Romanesque style, which is one of Spain's finest examples. Elements were added to the cathedral over the years and include Gothic features (apses and sanctuary) and Herrera style features (cloister). The building has three naves, a transept and three semicircular apses. Its dome base with 16 double arches supports the scaled dome, which is the symbol of the city of Zamora and is what differentiates it from other cathedrals. It has only one square-based belltower. Inside the cathedral has a whole host of works of art, including the choir stalls, a figure of Christ of the Insults and an image of the Virgin Mary. The two tympanums of the Bishop's Doorway are adorned by embossed images: one depicting the Virgin Mary with Child and the other, the apostles John and Peter.
