Albacete Catedral de San Juan Bautista

Albacete has a pretty good cathedral - the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista is one of those Spanish monuments that took ages to construct - over 400 years! Because of the amount of time it took to build, the Cathedral is a cornucopia of architectural styles. Construction started early in the 16th century in Gothic style but four great Renaissance columns were incorporated as well as a number of Baroque elements, together with a Neogothic main front. The tower of the Cathedral was completed in the 20th century.
