It is usual for any Spanish cathedral to have been built over a long period of time and therefore, the features of different artistic styles may be appreciated. This is the case of the cathedral of Teruel, in which the art of eight centuries comes together, making it one of the town’s most important heritages.

The tower is the oldest element of the cathedral, dating from the year 1257, and displaying its Mudejar origin and brick architecture most clearly.

The inside of the temple, comprised of three naves, has undergone five major reforms throughout its history, although all of them maintained the central nave’s splendid Mudejar roof, which was finished circa 1300.

This wooden roof houses several invaluable Gothic paintings which bear witness to the wide social and professional range of the people of the XIVth century.

Another great work of art has also been preserved in the Cathedral: the main altar, dedicated to the Assumption, a magnificent example of the Aragonese Renaissance.

To sum up, the temple is an amalgam of Mudejar, Gothic, Renaissance and even Neo-Mudejar styles, as proven by the Southern façade.

At 1.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. there is an audiovisual light screening, with a light and colour show, before the main altar, explaining all the details of this magnificent ensemble.
