Overall the architecture of Salamanca is amazing, and the cathedrals are part of the reason. The old and new cathedrals are connected in one tour. You'll get a free listening guide that is helpful, even if some of the info is rather mundane. Allow at least an hour to get through both old/new cathedrals.

Beautiful Cathedral from the 16th to 18th century, in a late Gothic and Baroque style. I enjoyed the older one more bu this was definitely more impressive to look at due to its size. I really like the wooden choir stall and beautiful pipe organ. I followed the whole tour with the audioguide plus several stops to admire the art... More

Although visiting the inside of the churches is a must do, a visit to the tower is the best part of all. DO NOT MISS IT. Great overview and views, too.

very impressive ,multiple side altars, exquisite choir aNd organs. Superb audio guide included in admission which is 4 euros. You can spend a half day there with ease. As it is attached to the old cathedral you see both for one admission

Unprepossing exterior and difficult to pick out from the New Cathedral as it joins up with it in the centre, but entering the Ieronimous door, a small vestibule and reception leads you to a steep stairway into the bowels of the church. Good exhibits on every floor, crowned by an interesting video construction of the Lisbon earthquake, reflections on the... More

From the Roman bridge it looks nice. It also looks nice at night, when you walk around it in the little streets. This is also a good spot if you want to park for free (near the bridge).

One goes through the new cathedral to reach the old but you should definitely tour the old Cathedral first (use the audio guide). The new cathedral, 17th century, is in the Gothic style to merge with the old cathedral although a baroque cupola and bell tower were added in the 18th century. The facade is fabulously carved and includes an... More

Actually there are 2 cathedrals, the old and the new. The new is magnificent, huge with so many things to see, the choir, the altars, the chapels and of course the old cathedral full of history is also a must. You pay only 4 euros to visit both and you get an audio guide.

To use the term new Cathedral looks like something recent, but it is the new one because it is from the XV century and the old one (in the same complex) is form the XII century. In the portico you may even find an astronaut.

Before going inside you pass the fabulous neo gothic facade of some tremendous detail & note the massive soaring tower at the SW corner. Cathedrals come in all shapes and sizes, but this is one that hits you with a sense of awesome vastness. The columns seem to ascend forever like Gaudi's magnum opus of the Sagrada Familia. The central... More
