Pleasant

This 13th century cathedral has an interesting interior with a 17th century organ, carved wooden chairs, a couple of interesting chapels, and the cathedral museum, which houses occasional major works. Also, taking photos or videos inside is prohibited, discouraging many people from entering. However, the outside offers a nice walk and a little trip to the medieval era of the city. The sides of the cathedral have Gothic and Renaissance facades, and a cloister garden that will give you the smile you are looking for when travelling to new places and viewing pleasant situations around you.

I could spend hours and hours watching the Cloister of the Cathedral. Hiding from the problems between their bows. Playing between the highlights and shadows. Acogiendome to Sacred while demons fled the big city.

Podria pasarme horas y horas contemplando el Claustro de esta Catedral. Escondiéndome de los problemas entre sus arcos. Jugando entre las luces y las sombras. Acogiendome a Sagrado mientras huyo de los demonios de la gran ciudad.

My brief analysis on this cathedral.

Orihuela Cathedral, one of the smaller ladies of Spain. Perhaps speaking of Orihuela remember the people of Miguel Hernandez, but is actually little people actually know that this is a city of considerable size and episcopal see. Few who know also that the bishop of the diocese of Alicante great, one of the most populated of Spain (remember cities like Alicante, Elche, Alcoy, Torrevieja, Benidorm or Orihuela itself belong to that prefecture). The Bishop of Alicante is not such but of Orihuela-Alicante and therefore must take precedence as its chair, the one in the land that gave birth to Miguel Hernandez. The Ecclesia Oriolensis. We do not want to present here a thorough study of the cathedral, but we want to refer to a short description of it that makes the reader imagine within this small architectural gem. The Cathedral of El Salvador would be considered as the smallest of Spain (next to the Roda de Isábena), but also the most complete. Gothic bill has three naves and only five sections including ambulatory. The first tranche would occupy the choir, the second chorus, the third track on the cruise sacred, the fourth and fifth presbytery the ambulatory. Here is a true miniature, yet a cathedral of Hispanic typology absolute, without any exception, should therefore be included in the legacy of the Spanish Gothic cathedrals pure. It is a special place, because the viewer can not be done to the idea of ​​being in a cathedral so small and so perfect at once, where the treasures are crowded as in any other Spanish metropolitan temple. Custody, his unknown Velázquez canvas, its rococo chapel of the holy apostles of Italian influence in few places in Spain we can find, its bars, its special ... choir enclosure, make it one of the most unknown treasures Spain. Navigator, if you can and go through the interior of the land Levantine, do not forget to visit. Responds like all the typical annexes, having the vestry attached next to the chapter house. Common solution, especially episcopal comfort. Interestingly, despite its small size, the chapter corresponds to a normal size to other cathedrals, indicating that the council was for nothing less. Another curiosity in the brand by being attached cloister next to capitulate after the head of the temple (which interestingly is the chapel (parish) of the shrine, a cathedral that is.

Mi breve análisis sobre dicha catedral.

La catedral de Orihuela, una de las damas más pequeñas de España.

Quizás al hablar de Orihuela recordemos el pueblo de Miguel Hernández, pero en realidad poca es la gente que en realidad sabe que se trata de una ciudad de considerable tamaño y con sede episcopal.

Son pocos también los que conocen que el obispo de la gran diócesis de Alicante, una de las más pobladas de España (recordemos ciudades como Alicante, Elche, Alcoy, Torrevieja, Benidorm o la propia Orihuela pertenecen a dicha demarcación). El obispo de Alicante no lo es tal, sino de Orihuela-Alicante y por tanto tiene que primar como su cátedra, la existente en la tierra que vio nacer a Miguel Hernández. La Ecclesia Oriolensis.

No queremos presentar aquí un profundo estudio de dicha catedral, pero sí queremos hacer alusión a una pequeña descripción de la misma que haga al lector imaginarse dentro de esta pequeña joya arquitectónica.

La catedral de El Salvador habría que considerarla como la más pequeña de España (junto a la de la Roda de Isábena), pero a la vez la más completa. De factura gótica tiene tres naves y tan solo cinco tramos incluyendo la girola. El primer tramo lo ocuparía el trascoro, el segundo el coro, el tercero la vía sacra en el crucero, el cuarto el presbiterio y el quinto la girola.

En este sentido es una verdadera miniatura, pero a la vez una catedral de tipología hispánica absoluta, sin ninguna clase de salvedad, por tanto habría que incluirla en el legado de las catedrales puras del gótico español.

Es un lugar especial, pues el espectador no se puede hacer a la idea de encontrarse en una catedral tan pequeña y tan perfecta a la vez, donde los tesoros se agolpan al igual que en cualquier otro templo metropolitano español. Su custodia, su desconocido lienzo de Velázquez, su capilla rococó de los santos apóstoles de una influencia italiana que en pocos lugares de España podemos encontrar, sus rejas, su especial cerramiento del coro; hacen de ella uno de los tesoros más desconocidos de España.

Navegante, si puedes y pasas por el interior de estas tierras levantinas, no te olvides de visitarla.
Responde al igual que todas a los anexos típicos, tenendo adosadas la sacristía junto a la sala capitular. Solución muy común, sobre todo por la comodidad episcopal. Es interesante que a pesar de su pequeño tamaño, la capitular se corresponde a un tamaño normal al resto de catedrales, lo que indica que el cabildo para nada era menor. Otra curiosidad la marca en el claustro por estar adosado junto a la capitular tras la cabecera del templo (donde curiosamente también se encuentra la capilla (parroquia) del sagrario, como catedral que es.

Orihuela Cathedral was built on the old mosque at the beginning it was a parish church. But in 1413, Pope Luna, Benedict XIII gave him the collegiate church statue. I could spend hours and hours looking at the cloister of the cathedral. It is a unique Gothic cathedral to me.

La cathédrale de Orihuela a été construite sur l'ancienne mosquée, au commencement il s'agissait d'une église paroissiale. Mais en 1413, le Pape Luna, Benoît XIII, lui a donné le statue d'église collégiale. Je pourrais passer des heures et des heures à contempler le cloître de la cathédrale. Il s'agit d'une cathédrale gothique unique à mes yeux.
