Supremly Gothic Exterior And Interior of Segovia Cathedral , Spain

July 3, 2018

Segovia Cathedral is the last Gothic cathedral to be built in Spain. Segovia Cathedral has a supremly Gothic exterior combined with a surprisingly bare interior, but contains numerous treasures.

The interior illuminated by 16th century Flemish windows, is light , bare and uncluttered , with large gothic Choir placed in the center. The walls and apse are lined with more than 20 chaples.  The Blessed Scrament Chapel features stained glss windows, elaborately carved choir stalls , and 16th and 17th century paintings, including a reredos portraying the deposition of Christ from the cross by Juan de Juni.

Across from the entrance, on the southern transept, is a door opening into the lage- Gothic cloister, which is older than the cathedral –  it and the elaborate door leading into it were transported from the old cathedral and are the work of architect Juan Guas.

Under the pavement immediately inside the cloisters are the tombs of Juan and Rodrigo Gil de Hontanon, that these two lie in a space designed by Guas is appropriate, for the three men together dominated the last phase of the Gothic style in Spain.

Off the cloister, a small museum of religious art, installed partly in ther first floor chapter house, has a white and gold 17th century ceiling , a late example of Mudejar artesonado work. The museum contains jewelery, paintings and a collection of rare antique manuscripts.
