Jerez de la Frontera Catedral

The Catedral, also call Antigua Colegiata de Nuestro Señor San Salvador is located in the Encarnación Square, in the locality of Jerez de la Frontera.

Dating from the 17th Century, the catedral is a combination of Gothic, Baroque and Neoclassical styles (work commenced in 1965 and was completed in 1778).

It stands upon the site of the primitive grand mosque of Jerez and the old Salvador church.
The bell tower stands separate from the mailh building and was possibly built on top of the minaret of the old mosque.

The rectangular building consist of five naves integrated into the structure of a Latin cross.
As the figurehead of the Asidonia-Jerez Diocese it has become the epicentre of all the religious celebrations which take place here in the city.
