Go on a Monday evening and don't miss the little 'Museo Diocesano'.

Loved all about it,as they say in Spain "pequeño pero matón" = Little but FAB!!! When I came out it had just finished raining and the Rainbow was protecting the city.

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

The cathedral is rather nice, with a fantastic dome (looks great from the outside and reminds me of various Byzantine church domes). There are some excellent choir stalls, with good carvings (some are described as 'earthy', which I think is a polite way of saying they depict a more realistic view of life and love.... There's the usual assortment of... More

This old cathedral is really beautifully restored and is well worth the 2 Euros entrance charge (for pensioners.)
