1. Catedral de Plasencia
Among the city's plastic structures, there are two cathedrals (Old Cathedral or Church of Santa Maria), with the originality of providing two buildings to overlap, differing in time and style. Today's Cathedral Museum is a building, a very interesting example of the transition from Romanesque to Gothic, and one of the city's greatest architectural values. Its construction began in the early 13th century, and its last original contribution took place in the 15th century. During these centuries, these works were created by French masters such as juan, JuanP é rez or DiegoD í az. In 1931, it was added to the National Monument List as part of cultural property. Notable is the Cantaloupe Tower, an ancient chapter hall that follows the model of the lighthouse of the Leon cimborrios Group. The new cathedral began in 1498 and continued in the 16th century in Gothic Renaissance style. The main architects of the century were more or less directly involved in its construction: enrique egas, juan de alava, francisco de colonia, alonso de covarrubias, diegodesilo é and rodrigogildehonta ñ o ó n. Many neighboring quarries are also very active, especially the Gonz á lez family. Of particular interest is the fact that inside the new cathedral building, the choir follows the chair line of the 15th-century Spanish choir, displaying the ruins of Catholic kings and the presidents of bishops, the works of German sculptors. Major altar paintings, carved by Gregorio Fern á ndez and his school of vallisoletana, painted by the Madridian of francisco rizi, Luis Fern á ndez and Gallardo mateo.
