Santa María de Prado Cathedral

Ciudad Real

The Cathedral of military orders

It is a transitional Gothic building, although its origins go back to a Romanesque shrine. It has been restored several times, the most recent one giving it its current appearance.

The first remodelling took place during the reign of Alfonso X “the wise”. The southern doorway and the main altarpiece are in Renaissance style. The Perdón doorway, which is Gothic with Romanesque elements, is thought to have been the church entrance at the time of Alfonso X. Notable items in the sacristy include several paintings, a paxboard by Becerril and an excellent Baroque chest of drawers. The new tower, completed in the 19th century, comprises four sections crafted in stone.
