Co-Cathedral of Cáceres

The Co-Cathedral of Cáceres is the Roman Catholic cathedral in the town of Cáceres, region of Extremadura, Spain.

Construction began in the 15th century in a Gothic style. The main portal was built in Romanesque style. The main 16th-century retablo, dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin, was carved by Roque Balduque and Guillen Ferrant. The interior has notable artworks and sculptures, including a San Pedro de Alcantara by Enrique Pérez Comendador.

This church was granted the status of co-cathedral in 1957; it shares Coria's diocese.[1]
