The Concatedral de Santa María, a 15th-century Gothic cathedral, creates an impressive opening scene on the Plaza de Santa María. At its southwestern corner is a modern statue of San Pedro de Alcántara , a 16th-century extremeño ascetic (his toes worn shiny by the hands and lips of the faithful). Inside, there’s a magnificent carved 16th-century cedar altarpiece , several fine noble tombs and chapels, and a small ecclesiastical museum . Climb the bell tower for views over the old town.
