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

The newer Basilica is worth visiting but the gem is the attached older but smaller Cathedral. The latter has some wonderful preserved medieval wall painting which are not to be missed. The audioguide was particularly useful and authoritative-sounding, though his pronounciation of the artist Titian's name left one wondering just how much he actually knew.

This is a combo ticket with the Old Cathedral that is adjacent; impressive gothic church with good audio presentation included in the price

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.
