At first sight a simple church, but its history and preservation will show you some very interesting details. Also, the views from the tower are very impressive, as you can see all of the medieval town: great!

Upon entry the cathedral didn't appear amazing however when wondering around it with an audio guide it really had some hidden gems. We thoroughly enjoyed climbing the tower to see the amazing views over the old town. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I enjoy Spanish cathedrals. Not the best or but still enjoyable. It's exterior style is plainer than most, but I believe it is in Arabic style.

While this church does have a very elaborate wooden alter area the walls are mainly plain stone which is lovely and makes a change from the overly ornate!

Small by cathedral standards. Very elaborate carved altar. Active cathedral with masses going on while tourists meander.

This is a great place to visit with a really comprehensive audio guide which is in English. There are great views from the tower too. It's worth the €4 fee!!!
