One more entry about some of the things that caught my attention while I was in Salamanca, Spain.
When it comes to first-class architecture, Salamanca´s New Cathedral is a clear example of how important details are. When you enter through the north gate of the Cathedral, suddenly you notice the miniature carvings that run in long stripes on the facade. There are hundreds of them in different shapes: gargoyles, rabbits, bulls, pigs, and even an astronaut. Yes, astronaut on the facade of a 16th century church ! When visitors are told about it, they spend hours until they manage to find him. Of course, the astronaut was carved just a few years ago and here it is just for you.
(It took me quite a while to find the astrounat...but eventually, I managed ! ).
