The main attraction of this Cathedral must be in the many side 'chapels' which are beautifully decorated and some appear open for private prayer when there is no service going on in the main space. The main space was the problem - whilst there is a spectacular roof construction the grandeur of the Cathedral as a whole is somewhat marred... More

I was so impressed by this Cathedral. We had come to see the Alcazaba and came across the cathedral on our way back to collect the car.The lovely vaulted ceilings and side chapels were a delight to see;

Wonderful monument, a very quiet place. The Cathedral is closed, but the square in which it is beautiful, full of palm trees.

They really keep the cathedral clean and nice. But 5 eur as entrance fee is rather high for this church which is interesting but not remarkable, In the museum you find a timeline, where the wording clearly shows that at least this church supported the dictatorship under Franco instead of the legal government. Interesting to read.

An interesting place to visit and the decoration is certainly over the top. Not sure that it was worth the entrance fee of 5 euros. It was a pity that there was no translation of the titles to the exhibits.

Very nice cathedral. You can go inside and look at all the details. We went when there was a liturgy, It is a nice place to visit and get some cold time, even if you are visiting Spain in the warm summer.

We had a couple of days visiting the sites and came across the cathedral. I love visiting churches for the colours, the history and the feeling but this church doesn't really have any of the amazing features of other churches / cathedrals I've visited and the €5 fee to enter with no guide or even a pamphlet was a bit...

The cathedral, built in 1524-1526 with it's castle-like towers, has resemblance to a fortress for defense. The raiders were North African pirates. They would often raid the city to capture it's citizens for sale as slaves. The cathedral was not only a religious sanctuary but also a defense fortification protecting people from invasion. The interior is modest, yet quite ornate.... More
