Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Castile and Leon / Province of Palencia / Palencia / Catedral de Palencia
Catedral de Palencia was built between 1321 and 1504 on top of a 7th-century Visigothic crypt, which was alleged to hold the remains of San Antolin. As you approach the cathedral, you will notice that the exterior of the Gothic building is quite austere. However, once you enter, you will be met with splendid ornamentation and more than 20 chapels of great artistic and historical interest. The cathedral is one of the largest in Europe and houses a museum filled with important works of art. Look for the retablo of 12 panels by Juan de Flanders, a court painter to Queen Isabella I.

The San Antolín cathedral is spectacular. It was built over 700 years ago and is a pleasure to view. There are also quaint bars/cafes right in front of the cathedral to have a beverage and enjoy the beautiful view.
Mutch more to see than you can immagine!
