Photographer's Note

Here's another photo from my journey to Portugal and northwestern Spain in 1984.

This is from Salamanca, a picturesque university city and one of Spain's contributions to the UNESCO list of world heritages. Salamanca has two cathedrals, one very old and another one (seen here) slightly less old. This "New cathedral" was built between 1513 and 1733, and since the construction lasted for more than 200 years, architectural trends came and went as the work progressed. It was planned in the Gothic style but went Renaissance halfway through and ended up as a mainly Baroque building, all styles still represented.

This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
