Photographer's Note

A view of the interior of Caceres Cathedral. Apologies for the previous posting (now withdrawn), which was somewhat lacking in sharpness.

Cáceres Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church in the town of Cáceres, in the region of Extremadura, Spain.

The cathedral was erected in the 15th century in a Gothic style, with the main portal following the Romanesque architectural tradition. The main 16th-century retablo, dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin, was carved by Roque Balduque and Guillen Ferrant.

The interior has notable artworks and sculptures, including a San Pedro de Alcantara by Enrique Pérez Comendador.

It was granted the status of co-cathedral in 1957; it shares the diocese with Coria.
