You must cross the Star Arch of this fortification and go to the Cathedral of Santa María if you want to see them. This beautiful Gothic-style building stands out for its altarpiece of the XVI century, the Chapel of the Black Christ and the Chapel of the Carbajal.
There are other interesting buildings in the centre such as the Episcopal Palace, the Mayoralgo Palace, the Carbajal Palace, the Hernando de Ovando House or the Golfines de Abajo Palace.
