Salamanca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has an ancient and diverse cultural history that included spans ruled variously by the Celts, Carthaginians, Romans, Alans, Visigoths, Moors, Spanish, and briefly, French.

Our collaborator Luis Ruiz Gutiérrez in Spain has provided a richly commented slideshow (read only) of the Catedral Vieja de Salamanca and its dual devotional and educational functions. See it here: catedral_vieja._salamanca.pps. This slide show is in Spanish only. Because it is a read-only presentation, you may be prompted to save or to open the file once it is downloaded. Once your selection is made, a box will pop up asking for a password. Simply click on the "Read Only" option to view the slide show.
