Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Concepcion Reviews
Non sfugge sicuramente all'attenzione questo grande edificio di un bianco abbagliante posto all'incrocio di calle de Goya con calle de Nuñez de Balboa, quasi davanti alla stazione metro Velazquez (sia... more »This large building of a dazzling white place at the intersection of Calle de Goya with calle de Nueez de Balboa, almost in front of the Velazquez metro station (we are in the modern district of Salamanca), certainly does not escape attention. Modern (1902) but made with Gothic shapes, it features an atta tower (44 meters) just above the main entrance. Of course, the external aspect has nothing to do with the great Gothic cathedrals of the past: it lacks that forest of spires, statues, pinnacles, gargoyls that make such churches stone lace (even the same top of the tower has the appearance of a trellis). Inside, however, it's a different story. It is presented in a pure Gothic style, from the dimensions to the geometric shapes, to the ribs of the vaults, to the shapes of the pillars that divide the environment into 3 aisles, to the stained glass windows, to the numerous side altars and to the retablo of the main altar made all in Gothic style, mostly in gilded wood. Also beautiful is the effect of the dome, which filtering the daylight is colored in blue, which contrasts with the white white of the rest of the church. A bright environment, as well as the intentions of Gothic architecture. Overall it is a church that I liked, despite not having ancient or valuable artistic works. The church has extended opening hours (Mon/Fri 7.30am-1.30pm and 5.30pm to 9pm; Sat/Sun 8.30am-1.30pm and 5.30pm to 9pm) but beware of the many Ss.Messe: Mon/Fri: 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 19, 20.30; Sat: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 19.30, 20.30; holidays: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20.30.

Work began on this beautiful church in 1902, following a project by the architect Eugenio Jiménez Corera, and it was finished after his death by Jesús Carrasco in 1914. It is located on Calle Goya, in the heart of the Salamanca district. With regard to the building, it was built in Neo-Gothic style over the longitudinal plan of three naves. What most attracts my attention is the huge 44-metre-high tower at its foot, crowned by a large iron spike upon which there is an image of the Virgin Mary. The building was complete with a rectory and a parish school, located to each side of the apse.
The cathedral is Amazing...you are feeling in heaven
