San Pedro Church
This is a Gothic church from the 14th and 15th century built at the time of the city’s greatest splendour due to the demographic growth that took place during those centuries. It has three naves with ribbed vaults, the central of which is higher and wider than the lateral ones, and a polygonal apse. Its naves are separated from one another by six enormous pillars supporting the weight of the roof.
It has three access doors: the east door or Puerta del Perdón [door of pardon], located at the foot of the church and which contains plant decorations and an interesting spiral-shaped rose window above it; the Puerta de Umbría [shadow door], which has decorations similar to those of the east door and a small porthole window with geometric ornaments illuminating the central nave; and the Puerta del Sol [sun door], located on the building’s southern façade, which is the simplest of the doors and lacks decoration.
The church’s interior contains three chapels, the most noteworthy of which is the Capilla de los Coca, which dates back to the 15th century and contains the remains of Fernando de Coca, the confessor of Isabella I of Castile and proponent of the works of the church. This tomb has a clear resemblance to the Doncel de Sigüenza’s, the late Gothic tomb of a Castilian military leader. The series of chapels comes to an end with the Retablo de Nuestra Señora de Loreto, an alabaster altarpiece.
