Well worth a visit

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.

The Cathedrals of Salamanca are the city's top monuments and are a mandatory visit for everyone in Salamanca. The facades are full of surprises, and the interiors are marvelous. But the tower climb is out of this world though. The path up spreads out to the exterior and the roof of the Catedral, and you can stop on several levels... More

Having visited the Old Cathedral, you will understand why the Bishops decided to build a larger, higher Cathedral next door. trul magnificent.

You won't find the Cathedrals at Salamanca in many books on the history of architecture, in fact you'll be hard pushed to find any apart from Toledo and Seville. So anyone who has visited the great cathedrals and abbeys of England, France and Italy are in for a disappointment. The magnificence of York and Durham is not here neither is... More

The new cathedral and old cathedral are attached to each other. The architecture on one is different than the other, as it was built in different centuries. This place is magnificent and everyone needs to check it out!

If you have this option, visit las catedrales on tuesday morning between 10 and 12. It's free in these two hours, you only pay for an audio guide if you want it. The Old Cathedral is more beautiful, but the new one has wondeful cielings. However, I've seen cathedrals that attracted me more. Don't miss the astronaut on the facade... More

The facade is an amazing thing. But just like everything else in this city, well most, is that it is mashed together with everything else. Meaning that, when you want to take a photo, there isn't enough space to properly take a photo of the facade. Neither, the side, nor the front. Well, if it's early during the day taking... More

The two cathedrals, are together at that will evaluate as a whole. admission is paid but provided an audio book in their mother tongue. The same is easy use and ergonomic. With so much to see, the various pieces of art, mostly of the century XI to XIV are fantastic. The architecture is amazing and great. Visit and imagine that... More
