Great Cathedral in Old Town District. Beautifully constructed and maintained. It is definitely worth a visit.

Be sure to pay the entrance fee to the New Cathedral in order to see the beautiful Old Cathedral. Audio guides are included to help the appreciation of these two sites. You can jump ahead to the next narration if you have a limited amount of time. Be sure to ask for a slight senior discount if you're over 65.

Some info from the audio was helpful, some was tedious- feel free to skip through some of the stops.

first of all this is how you get to enter to the old one which is really much more beautiful. But the new one is also nice.

Translation available in numerous languages. While there, we happened upon a wedding being performed among the tourists. Lots and lots of history.

Not sure why this is reviewed seperately from the old cathedral, they're effectively one building with one admission. Interesting and beautiful, but don't miss the Ieronimus Tower (paid for outside the cathedrals), giving stunning rooftop views of the outside and inside of both cathedrals.

Step though a door and you go from the Old Cathedral to the New Cathedral of Salamanca. The new section is probably not as fascinating as the old, but still worth a stop. You really can't see one without the other. Highlight for me was the beautiful cupola.

You can visit both cathedrals at the same time. They are both really a sight to behold - on par with Seville's Cathdral - maybe better...incredibly ornate and beautiful. Don't miss it! Pay the entrance fee - you wont regret it - even if 'churched out'.

If you've seen several cathedrals already (Toledo, Seville, Barecelona) there are more interesting places to see in Salamanca.

See my review of the Old Cathedral as one is inside the other. The New Cathedral was built around and over the old one. It is totally unique. Do NOT miss this Cathedral.
