Take the tour with the handheld audio guide. The whole experience is steeped in history and an incredible history of Christianity in this area.

the most impressive thing according to my guide book is that the arch of the dome so to speak is the 2nd largest in reach after St Peters in Rome.

Visited this cathedral over the Easter break with a group. It is in a beautiful location and surrounding area of city is lovely. It is very difficult to get up to the cathedral if you have any walking/mobility issues.

Well worth the walk up! The highest point in the city! View! Can only imagine the labor over many centuries. Audio guide was excellent, detailed. We actually liked San Fileu better for prayer....

This cathedral is enormous inside and simply takes your breath away. We loved the cloisters too. The museum contained incredible artefacts the most impressive being the Tapestry of the Creation Great to be in a sacred space that feels that way
