“Top art.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

THe cathedral did not impress us utterly but in the Royal Chapel (separate entrance fee) the pieces of art, mainly paintings from the greatest masters, have to be seen. Take your time and enjoy.

“The Chapel was excellent, the Cathedral ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Chapel was beautiful, not to be missed for all its splendor, the Cathedral I thought was very large, a mishmash of work and many large areas that were whitewashed, giving it a sterile look.

“The Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I always enjoy ancient buildings and the Renaissance architecture was wonderful. The small fragments of Gothic, seen from outside was brilliant.
