Segovia. Catedral de Santa María

Segovia. Catedral de Santa María

Begun in 1525, the construction of Segovia Cathedral was ordered by Charles V to replace an earlier cathedral near the Alcázar, which had been destroyed during the War of the Comuneros, a revolt against that king.
The designs for the cathedral were drawn up by the leading late-Gothicist Juan Gil de Hontañón but executed by his son Rodrigo, in whose work can be seen a transition from the Gothic to the Renaissance style. The cathedral was finally completed in 1768 and consecrated on July 16 of that year.

The light is wonderful in this! Great POV as well. I also like that some of the houses below are lit up, complementing the cathedral.

Wonderful shot of a town with mixed memories for me. In 1999, my luggage was stolen from a rental car boot in Segovia. Lost was the film containing all of my photographs from a 3 week cycling and car tour of Spain. Still, a beautiful city.
