    Description:

    The seat of the Anglican Bishop of Carlisle. It is located in Carlisle, in Cumbria, North West England. It was founded as an Augustinian monastery and became a cathedral in 1133. Carlisle, because of heavy losses to its fabric, is the second smallest (after Oxford), of England’s ancient cathedrals. Its notable features include some fine figurative stone carving, a set of 15th century choir stalls and the largest window in the Flowing Decorated Gothic style in England (the East window).

In 1509 Ferdinand the Catholic ordered Alfonso Rodríguez (died ca. 1512) and Antón Egas to go to Salamanca, inspect the site and prepare a plan. The New Cathedral has many similarities to…
