Photographer's Note

A quiet shot of the cloister in the Catedral Vieja of Salamanca.

Salamanca is a doubly graced city since it has both an "old" and "new" cathedral. The "new" one --in spectacular Spanish gothic style-- was built attached to the old romanesque cathedral. The original cathedral lost a small part of its construction, leaving almost the entire thing intact.

The old cathedral has a series of gorgeous chapels in its inner cloister. Here is the cloister walk showing the doorways to the chapels. Along the walls are sepulchres of famous salmantinos.

Last, I apologize for the poor quality of the photo --I took it with an old Olympus which produced very grainy photos. But given the theme, perhaps the graininess enhances the image. Let me know.
