Hi dear TE friends

Place : Oviedo/Cathedral San Salvador

Theme: Trip to Peaks of Europe (IV)/Oviedo

The cathedral of Oviedo is the city's most distinctive and impressive building with a tall spire that extends skywards and dominates the old town.
Constructed of large, and almost white stone blocks, the cathedral makes an immediate impact with everyone who sees it as it overlooks a large square, "La plaza de la Catedral".
The history of a place of worship on this spot goes back well over 1,000 years to the days of the Visigoth empire and King Fruela.
The first church to be foundered here was built in 765 AD, but it was destroyed by the Moors before the turn of the next century.


I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends
