Discover "The Beautiful Stranger", as has been popularly known the Cathedral of San Antolín of Palencia since always. Centuries of history, pieces of art, stories, legends, famous characters... all this and more is what the visitor finds out on its visit to this huge Cathedral that never ceases to let people indifferent and that always amazes to the ones that penetrates inside. Within the Project "The Beautiful Recognized" this sacred temple begins its journey as a center of worship and tourism, aiming the dissemination of this flagship of Palencia´s heritage.
This building has nearly the whole history of Gothic architecture in its fabric. One excepts the earliest Northern French, but everything else is here, even the transition towards the Italian renaissance, and the beginning of the baroque.

Very interesting place to visit, although it is difficult to get there because there is no indication in the city.

Once you are guided down the stairs by the guide, you will be shocked to see just how large this cavern is! It's amazing to see the many beautiful formations created because of a simple drip of water (for many years of course!). Absolutely beautiful, and well laid out with proper paths and stairs. Take a coat because it is damp and chilly in the cavern and be sure to wear comfortable shoes with non-slip soles.

In the middle of corn fields, far form even a small village this monastery, build in the XII century has one of the most charming gothic cloisters have seen anywhere in the world. An elderly nun guide, the total absence of tourists, the silence broken only by bird song, meld with the unpretentious extreme beauty of the architecture and unadorned sculpture to bring forth inner peace. They also offer room and board, which I have not tried

We visited the Palacio de la Diputacion twice in the same day, firstly during the day to take in the architecture and later in the evening to attend one of the summer Concerts being hosted there.
The architecture of the place is very interesting, lots of natural light to illuminate the ceiling mural and the corner art as well as the marble staircase. If you like architecture you'll enjoy taking a look around here.
The evening concert was something a little different, the inner courtyard being used for an all-seat show with an audience of a couple of hundred people, intimate and cozy without being cramped.
The building looks even more impressive when lit up at night too!
