Soria - Procathedral of San Pedro

The Procathedral of San Pedro in Soria was built in the 12th century on the site of an old Augustine monastery, and was subsequently rebuilt in the 16th century in Renaissance style under the patronage of Bishop Acosta. It has a Plateresque façade and three Gothic naves. Its cloisters are quite special - so much so - that they have been declared a National Monument.
