The Cathedral of Santa María de la Redonda (15th-18th centuries) towers over the marketplace with its impressive Baroque towers. The current cathedral complex was built on the walls of a former Romanesque church with a circular floor plan.

View of the interior with the Baroque main retable. In the center it shows the family tree of Mary, starting with the reclining Jesse, from which the family tree sprouts.

View into the painted dome with Gothic cross ribs and golden keystones.
