I spent a solid hour here admiring the beautiful artwork in God's Albacete house. Just absolutely beautiful and very peaceful inside. I actually visited 3 days straight. Beautiful little park across the street with fountain.

The church inside is really well decorated and looks great. Am not a religious person but could admire the artwork. If in Albacete it's certainly worth a visit

There is nothing special about this cathedral compared to Chartres or even Murcia. However, if you're in Albacete, and you are an architecture buff, check it out.

Right across from the Knife Museum...plain on the outside but pretty on the inside. Plain for most Catholic churches in Europe, but the paintings on the walls were beautiful. Photos included.

Worth a look if you're in the area but nothing spectacular. Don't go out of your way to see it. But it's near the center so it's not inconvenient.
