Bilbao Cathedral, known also as ‘Santiago Cathedral’ is a Roman Catholic cathedral situated in Bilbao, Spain. The building dates back to the 15th century but it is thought there was a church on the site in the 13th century. The cathedral is built to a Gothic style with an impressive facade and spire. The church was not recognised as a cathedral until 1950. Today, it is a popular place of worship for locals and a popular spot with those interested in architecture.
