Palencia Cathedral

Palencia Cathedral is one of the city’s monuments to its rich history. It is known as ‘La Bella Desconocida’ (The Beautiful Unknown One). Perhaps it is because of the treasures inside the cathedral that it has been given such a curious title. El Greco’s ‘St. Sebastian’ is just one of the valuable paintings to be found here.
