Peterborough Cathedral (in English: Peterborough Cathedral) ?, seat of the diocese of Peterborough, is dedicated to San Pedro, San Pablo and San Andrés, whose effigies are found in each of the three gables that make up its famous west facade. Founded in the Saxon period, it belongs fundamentally to Norman architecture, after its remodeling in the 12th century. Together with Durham Cathedral and Ely Cathedral, it is one of the most important buildings in England in the 12th century, preserved practically intact although with some extensions and restorations.
Peterborough Cathedral is known above all for its west facade, perpendicular Gothic style, with its three huge arches, with no known precedents or direct successors. The appearance of the building is slightly asymmetric, since one of the towers was never finished building; This, however, can only be seen from a distance, so that the effect of the west facade seen from Cathedral Close is harmonious.
