The Cathedral is magnificent, a soaring Gothic structure with many lovely chapels, a carved wooden Sacristy, and the most stunning example of Spanish Baroque art anywhere. It is called the Transparente and is carved from white marble and partly gilded. All the characters are in motion, legs swing one way, torsos twist in the opposite direction, an angel swoops down swinging the censer. The top scene features the Last Supper, and below this the Virgin Mary sits with a wriggling baby jesus, surrounded by angels and cupids. All the characters are busy doing something, often mischievous; the cupids on the left side, are squashing each others’ faces, and on the right they’re about to kiss.
