The Cathedral of Santa María in Ciudad Rodrigo is one of the best late Romanesque complexes in Castilla y León. Its construction began in the last third of the twelfth century, hence its plant follows the lines of the Romanesque of the time (three naves plus one of transept and a head of three staggered apses of semicircular profile) but its long duration (more than one century) caused that its vaulting is already Gothic. As remarkable elements, it is necessary to mention the wonderful portals of the hastiales of the cruise: the one of the Chains, the one of Amayuelas and the one of the Forgiveness or of the Glory.
