Beautiful Cathedral. We strolled around for ages marvelling at the alter and the statues. Even if you're not religious, you should go and admire the architecture, history and artefacts. Amazing!

I love walking around old Cathedrals. The faith of ancient people and what the did with art and architecture in order to give their gifts and talents to God are inspiring. This Cathedral is no different. Well worth it!

A precious church with details that could probably date back to the crusades if you are interested in the theme.

We stayed at the hotel across the street so it was a must to see. Make sure you a headset to hear the history of the cathedral. An amazing place to see. Make sure you bring a jacket it’s very cold inside.

As ever a Cathedral of elegance and beauty. It is set on a lovely square with a great deal of atmosphere. Because it is considered a monument rather than, or as well as, a church there is a charge to enter.

This was an included stop on our escorted tour and I cannot say enough positive things about it. The church was beautiful and the city within the walls was very cool to see.

This is the first Gothic cathedral in Spain. Its construction started in 1172 and continued into the 14th century. The facade looks like a fortress because at that time there was continuous warfare with the Moors and the church had to provide refuge in case...More
