Be aware that while the church posts on its website and a sign at the church that it is open until 8 pm in July, they will not let you in after 7 pm. They lock the doors. The website says visits have to start at least 1.5 hours before close to complete the entire tour, but the sign says... More

This cathedral has an amazing altar backdrop - never seen anything like it elsewhere. There is a tour one can do, but we went to Mass and were impressed by the grandeur of the main altar.

Best in row of our trip after Burgos and Leon Cathedrals. Holy Chambers are special. They close the entrance an hour before closing time.

Firstly, the interior is average and not worth the 7 EUR fee. In fact I deducted a star from the original score due to the attitude of the cashier nad her audio-distributing colleague: I asked a simple Yes/No question [in Spanish]. Instead of just replying both lectured me how it is not their job to give me information [related to... More

This is a very old cathedral and it is well worth spending your time getting a guided tour to listen to as you go around

Similar to all such churches in Spain. Nothing special but still worth a visit. Closed at lunch time.

We did a ship tour to Oviedo and enjoyed wondering down the Old City to find the beautiful church the Cathedral de San Salvador.For some reason the church was closed and we could not go inside. We had to meander around the streets to walk around the beautiful church.

A beautiful cathedral in Oviedo where is kept the "sudario" (piece of cloth that covered the face of Christ when he was put on the tomb) the authenticity was certified by the Nasa and besides when put on top of the Turin shroud the blood stains coincide exatly. On the secon floor, the Camara Santa you can see the Victory... More

We had a few hours to kill before travelling to Asturias (Oviedo) airport for a flight and decided to visit the old town, which we had been told was very attractive. Well it is really quite small and isn't particularly attractive. Completely underwhelmed we went to the Cathedral at around 3.45 and they were closing the doors.We could see no... More
