Cathedral of Valladolid

The Cathedral of Valladolid (its official name is Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Valladolid) was built in the 16th century and is a good example of renaissance architecture.  Note the horizontal rectangular design, typical of the architecture of the renaissance.  This cathedral was designed by Juan de Herrera, and is a good example of taking a renaissance theme and making it Spanish - instead of Italian.
