In front of the Proto- Romanesque temple is the old Visigothic chapel from the mid 7th century, built during the reign of Wamba to preserve the remains of the martyr Saint Antoninus of Pamiers, a Visigothic-Gallic nobleman brought from Narbonne to Visigothic Hispania in 672 or 673 by Wamba himself. These are the only remains of the Visigothic cathedral of Palencia.

It is a large Gothic building, popularly dubbed as "The unknown beauty" because it is not as well known as other Spanish cathedrals, though it is a valuable building which has in its interior many works of art of great value.
