This was our first cathedral as we walked the Camino and your first is always the one to remember! It was breathtaking and brought tears to our eyes. Informative and well presented we enjoyed the interactive displays and the helpful interpretation.

This is another grand cathedral. In the middle can be found the graves of a royal couple of Navarre. While the building is beautiful , there are so many churches in Europe that are equally grand. The Renaissance facade doesn't seem to make sense since it is actually a Gothic structure. I guess it is worth a peek but I... More

The presentation of information, the interactive elements and the marriage of old and new is brilliantly done

Cathedrals are a dime a dozen in Spain. It's a Catholic country after all, and nearly every city of any size and history has one. Been in one, been in all, you might say. That's not really true, they are all slightly different, and each have their own stories to tell. The Pamplona cathedral however, isn't just slightly different, it's... More

Inside a good example of French gothic, outside ruined by 18th century upgrade to facade. Charles lll and his queen in crypts inside the church. We didn't get to see the cloisters which are reportedly very good.

This Cathedral is a true tourist destination as it is set up well for visitors. It is beautifully restored, has great explanations of historical interest & is simply impressive. I think it is a have-to on your Pamplona travel list.

Loved the interior and the fact that a lot of effort has been put into a great exhibition Detailing aspects of religion over time, archaeology, etc. Really well done!

Impressive building with a very good exhibition inside the cathedral tracing the origin of the human race. Exhibition voted the best in the World in 2013! The cloisters are a must see. They are very impressive.

Not the most exciting of Spain's beautiful old cathedrals but there was an interpretive museum attached which detailed the cathedrals history right back to pre-Christian times with exhibits from different periods. The cloisters are stunning and the whole place was well worth a visit - and the €5 entry fee which is reduced to €3 for Pilgrim - so if... More

As Cathedrals go, Pamplona is as good as anywhere, the building is interesting and hugely magnificent and of course inside is as full of excess as any other Cathedral. We did have an interesting guided tour and I guess it is worth doing this if you are goind inside. There are a few interesting buildings in Pamplona worth a visit
