This small cathedral has a good museum which is well worth seeing. However the highlight is the stunning altar. The central main section is relatively plain but it is flanked by a happy nativity scene and a crucifixion scene. The latter is the most incredible...More

We stayed in Toro, but took the bus to Zamora, so it took us a while to actually find the cathedral - signage in the tourist area is not very good. But it was worth the trek!

If the chap at the ticket booth had been any more lethargic & disinterested he would have been asleep. Audio-aid which was the most detailed & informative ever-in fact the litany of names was quite overwhelming. Thought the Cathedral drear, or should that be dreer,...More

Very interesting museum and tour. Worth the 5€. Went to Mass at 10am. The giant monstrance and silver altar were the most impressive to me. The bathroom was not very clean. They do have a nice little gift shop.

Having seen so many cathedrals in Spain, almost gave this one a miss. That would have been a mistake. This off-the-beaten-track cathedral has a museum which has tremendous tapestries about Hannibal and the Trojan Wars. The 12th century cathedral is a delight. Great craftsmanship and...More

We visited the cathedral on a sunday, just before one o'clock, apparently mass time. Went on nevertheless, and found a beautiful cathedral. In the museum lots of clerical objects. On the first floor several fantastic flemish tapestries.

Much smaller than its counterpart in Salamanca it is very beautiful. Fortunate to have visited just prior to a wedding and organ prep was rich to my ears The fish-scaled exterior dome most unique.
