Sé Nova

The "new cathedral", built from 1598, was part of the college of Jesuits of the "Eleven Thousand Virgins" until the disappearance of the order in 1759. Its façade has two levels, one on top of the other. Note the four alcoves of the lower section which accommodate statues of the saints of the Society of Jesus. The interior, which is huge, accommodates an imposing retable in gilded wood and a magnificent silver throne.
