The cathedral itself is like many others, here with an interresting thomb of Navarras kings,but there is an extraordinary great modern presentations of the history, using light,sound,smell...very nice and interactive,but...only in spain language. But they did a good job and it s worth visit ( and 5€ ) also for us,who dont'speak spanish.

the Cathedral is very interesting. somedays Organ is played. There is an expo right beside the cathedral called Occidens telling the history of the land. A must to understand history and culture of the Kingdom of Navarra.

The present Gotic cathedral was build in th 14C an 15C. I think it is a really breathtaking room in an impressive Building. Remember to visit the cloisters.

This is a beautiful building and awe inspiring. The main body of the cathedral is beautiful with its small family chapels elaborately decorated down each side. Once you have seen this you carry on into more of the preserved building through various information galleries which tell you about the history and evolution of it. There is also the refectory, the... More

Although the cathedral itself is not the most spectacular, they did a great job creating a tour through the adjacent buildings and garden connecting the sites history with worldly historical facts!

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.

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.
