    The architect was given a superb site for Segovia’s replacement cathedral on the top of a ridge in the center of the city. He designed for it a building in golden stone, a little larger than the already enormous Old Cathedral of Salamanca, and gave it much the same design details:pinnacles, buttresses and parapets, a nearly flat roof, a splendid cupola over the crossing and, inside, complex ribbed vaults.
