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

This vast place uses the power of vastness and spectacle to convey its impact. It is not as beautiful as the old cathedral in my opinion.

Both the Old and the New Cathedrals are joined together and blend beautifully. It is a highlight to wander thru the many chapels and areas to pray, all adorned with incredible sculptures.

As Churches go this is interesting because it was built next the OLD Cathedral; of interest to people interested in comparing the architectural style between the two churches.

Built adjacent and above the old cathedral. Great audio guides are available and a must for the serious visitor. Wonderful individual chapels. Two complementary organs in the choir. Stunning architecture, statues and paintings. Take a tour of the roof and see the cathedral and the town from above. No point in visiting Salamanca without visiting the twin cathedrals

Convento de San Esteban knocks spots off this dull austere. And drab cathedral. The outside facade is wonderful but for us and our friends that is where it ended. Not worth the money or the climb up the hill. Best part of it was the tower ironimous which you can climb.
