Catedral de San Salvador de Jerez de la Frontera, Cadiz, Spain

Echoes of Seville colour Jerez’ dramatic cathedral, a surprisingly harmonious mix of baroque, neoclassical and Gothic styles. Standout features are its broad flying buttresses and intricately decorated stone ceilings. Behind the main altar, a series of rooms and chapels shows off the cathedral’s collection of art (including works by Zurbarán and Pacheco), religious garments and silverware. You can also enjoy an orange-tree-lined patio (the church was built by Alfonso X on the site of an old mosque) and a ‘secret staircase’ to nowhere. Though erected between 1695 and 1778, the building only officially became a cathedral in 1980. Visit Spain. Epic Spain Route © Monika Newbound
