In 1919 the cathedral became the burial place of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar ("El Cid"), and his wife Doña Jimena. The cathedral was declared "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO on October 31 of 1984. Of great interest is the Papamoscas (Flycatcher), an articulated statue which opens its mouth upon the sounding of the bells at each hour. Here is also the tomb of El Cid and his wife Doña Jimena, the letter of security of El Cid and his chest.
