We were in Salamanca for 3 nights and stayed very near the cathedral. As we were walking along, we saw the entrance and decided to go in. We stopped at every stop on the audio tour and loved the beauty, peace, history, and sacredness of it it was also very cool on a hot day. The old cathedral tour goes... More

The old and new cathedrals are really all one building, the new one on the N side. We saw them from every angle, low and high, day and night. Lovely yellow sandstone and the tour up the top is well worth it. Lots of spiral steps but there's a one way system. We enjoyed the self-guided day one more but... More

It is hard to discern the new from the old, but one is simply amazed by the Gothic architecture of the buildings.

Perhaps my review differs from others but I tend to like the Old Cathedral a bit more than the new. With this said, it is still time well spent to visit the next door neighbor of the Old Cathedral. Different style but still quite inspiring.

Best place for views over the city. Windy staircase as usual but rooms to stop off and see the history of it. Can go along roof top walkways and see the building up very close. Marvellously preserved piece of architecture

This is really an incredible and beautiful building (both the old and new cathedral). We had a lovely tour guide who told us all the history. It's truly breathtaking. The only problem I have is that I can't help thinking of all the poor people who could have been helped if the Catholics didn't spend so much money building this... More

Impressive to visit! I would recommend the tour 'backstage' which starts at the side of the cathedral (the side just in front of the NH Puerta de Cathedral). In this way you have a unique view from impressive points (outside on the roofs, on top from the bell tower or even on the walkways whole on the top inside the... More

The whole area around the Cathedral and University is well worth experiencing, but mind the pick pockets, we were dipped for 150 euros

The audio tour of the new cathedral supplied much information that did not interest us. However, the organ was playing while we were there and that was lovely.

Worth a visit, particularly because it is your way into the Old Cathedral, which is more of a museum. Very well preserved.
