The old and new Cathedral of Plasencia
The Plasencia Cathedral is in fact two buildings from different periods.
A Romanesque-Gothic edifice was built in the 13 and 14C.
At the end of the 15C., its east end was demolished and a new Cathedral
with a bolder architectural design was begun : initiated in the time
of the Bishop Gutiérrez Alvarez de Toledo in 1498 and inaugurated in 1578.
