P6261693ac Massive Zamora Romanesque Cathedral Cupola and Belfry (Torre del Salvador)
The emblematic element of this temple, fortunately preserved, is its dome; Lifted by pendentives on the crossing of the central nave and transept nave, the lantern brings light with an unknown aesthetic way thus far in these lands; Burgundian and Byzantine styles influenced architects who erected it, and resulted in this beautiful piece, model for other monuments, such as the collegiate church of Toro, the old cathedral of Salamanca and Plasencia cathedral; Four angle towers underpin its structure, as do other many pediments crowned by high triangles between each of them; Small blind arches, capitals, columns, scales form a special whole very spectacular; Spain Castille y Leon Zamora Cathedral 12th century.
