Learn about the history of the Cathedral of Cuenca

Cuenca Cathedral is one of the most particular buildings of the Spanish Middle Ages and much has been written about it to explain its presence in these lands Castilla y La Mancha. Cuenca was conquered by Alfonso VIII of Castile in the year 1177. Then, the Mosque was Christianized as usual until the works of an ex-novo temple of Christian typology could be undertaken. It is studied that this must have happened between ten or twenty years later. In 1208 The High Altar had been consecrated so the head must have been completely built by that date.

Interior of the Cathedral of Cuenca

Interior of the Cathedral of Cuenca

The fact is that it is a building that, except for peculiarities and simplifications, can be included in the category of First French Gothic, that is to say, belonging to that current of the twelfth century prior to classical Gothic and which has its best exponents in French cathedrals such as Laon, Soissons and Paris. At the time of starting to build the cathedral, the prevailing style in the Christian kingdoms was still Romanesque, So it should not surprise us that it was the foreigners of the court of King Alfonso VIII who introduced the Gothic airs in our cathedral, since this was the new order prevailing in Europe beyond the Pyrenees.

Exterior of the Cathedral

Exterior of the Cathedral

The Cathedral was consecrated by Saint Julian, second bishop of Cuenca, in the year 1196 when it was still in its infancy.

Main Square, next to the Cathedral of Cuenca

It is considered as the first Gothic cathedral made in Castilla, being definitively consecrated under the invocation of Santa María in the year 1208 por el obispo Rodrigo Ximénez de Rada. However, the construction of the cathedral begins in late Romanic, so it is natural that we find Romanesque cathedral resistance against the Gothic news of the moment. The initial plan of the cathedral consisted of three ships; at the height of the cruise it was transformed into five ships and five apses still forming, following the traces of the ruling Romanesque.

In the fifteenth century the five apses were replaced by a double girola to take advantage of the development of the five ships available to the cathedral. Its new plant would be formed by a Latin cross, three ships, double ambulatory and a deep chancel. The cruise is covered by a large central dome influence anglonormanda.

The chapels of the aisles were built mostly in the XVI century in Gothic style. Its exterior was renovated almost entirely in the sixteenth century and in the seventeenth century was built the chapel of the Tabernacle. During the eighteenth century it was reformed both the façade and towers, giving the building a Baroque appearance. This reform affected the main facade was built by King Ferdinand III and had two twin Gothic towers. The towers of the facade along with two other towers cathedral had disappeared during a fire, what gave rise to new reform, who it was born in the year 1720 by Juan Perez and newly reconstructed in 1723 under the direction of Luis Arteaga.

In the twentieth century as a result of damage to the facade, a sinking tower bells in 1902 by lightning strikes, He proceeded to its reconstruction in the year 1910, what is your current appearance, Neo-Gothic style facade work of Vicente Lampérez. Su aspecto actual confirma que la misma quedó sin terminar. En la parte más alta encontramos una imagen de San Julián que curiosamente es la única imagen que existe en toda la fachada.

And how could it be otherwise, This mountain has a great legend that tells that a young shepherd named Venancio herded his herd of goats on the steep slopes of the Sierra Callosina, when one of them, lost, he perched on top of a steep peak that looms over the city and from which he could not get out. Venancio came to help that little goat, with such misfortune that he stumbled his body into the void of that steep slope. In that precise and difficult moment, the young pastor Venancio did not hesitate to entrust himself to San Roque, with so much faith, that the miracle known today was worked in which Venancio reached the ground without suffering any damage, attributing to the invoked Patron Saint the miracle of saving his life. Venancio promised that, during all his life, he would hang a lantern with lights at the top of that peak in memory of his gratitude.
