There are quite a few angled mirrors to help you see the intricate stone work above. From the upper level we saw lots of storks nesting and thousands of swifts putting on an aerobatics... More

The cloisters are truly lovely. A great air of peace pervades. The building itself is most impressive and the church is awesome. It is a very reasonably priced attraction.

Very affordable entry and it doesn't take long to have a look around (40 mins~). Entry to the church is also included and they have some interesting collections. I went during Semana Santa and we were able to see the Church's floats for the processions the following morning. There was a man there to guard the floats and was also... More

All tours take you to the Two Cathedrals that are very good, but we found this even better and very genuine. Recommended althoug you have to pay some euroes. Nice clean toilets.

The visit of San Esteban is quite cheap for students, but there's a lot to see. The church is huge and the whole front wall is golden, which is pretty impressive. They let you walk around for yourself, so you're not in a hurry and you can take great pics and enjoy the old buildings surrounding you.
