Cathedral, Pamplona

The façade of the Pamplona Cathedral had a long-lasting effect, the monumentality and pathos of the Pamplona project foreshadow the Romantic style of the 19th century. A Corinthian portico is positioned between two tall bell towers; its rows of double columns form a magnificent entrance way into a church whose origins date back to 1026. Vivid clarity and archeological authenticity characterize this late work by Ventura Rodríguez.
