The cathedral houses a museum with religious silverware used in the Catholic mass. If you like you will be impressed by the enormous monstrans which looks like a gothic skyscraper in gold, silver and brass plus precious stones. But to me the biggest surprise were the tapestries upstairs. Bright colours, very well preserved and lively depictions of heroes from the... More

For a relatively small city, this cathedral is a real gem. We were surprised by just how lovely it was. Inside the architecture and art are wonderful, and there is also a collection of tapestries which are well worth seeing, although you do have to pay for this. The overall impression is one of peacefulness, with a great feeling of... More

The best time to visit around sun set, the walk from Santa Clara all the way to the Cathedral is beautiful, with all the locals doing the walk all dressed up it's like an informal fashion show. when you arrive to the cathedral you can see a lot of work has been done to rejuvenate the area and preserve it,...

Situated on the top of the hill and with a park overlooking the Duero this is a beautiful Cathedral to visit. Although there are many churches in Zamora the Cathedral is worth a visit.

This cathedral is absolutely gorgeous. It's very well preserved and has astonishingly beautiful tapestries! It's magnificent in every possible way but without being "crushing".

The museum houses some impressive tapestries and with few more in the church too. Lovely coloured stone used in this cathedral.

Make sure to allow sufficient time to spend in the little museum attached to the cathedral. It is well worth, filled with religious art that is quite good and well displayed. Really more of an attraction than the cathedral itself.

4 euros entrance for cathedral without extra museum Included hand set with good commentary. Frsutratlingly as usual loads about the religious bits but the actual architecture and wooden carved chairs /doors etc don't get a mention hardly. Don't miss the tapestry rooms on the upper floor

Wonderful building with its giant "dome." But best of all are the extraordinary tapestries on the upper floor of the museum. These medieval Flemish treasures show scenes from the Trojan War, scenes in the life of the founder of the Tarquin dynasty in early Rome plus scenes from the Jesus miracle of the olive garden. I saw them first some... More
