“A gem in the old city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We visited this cathedral on Maundy Thursday, when it was free to go in through the front and wander around. Normally you have to pay to go through the museum to gain entry, but it was closed for a public holiday. The cathedral was fine looking from the outside and inside. The interior is quite simple and elegant; modern stained glass along the length contrasts with the older window behind the altar. It was a peaceful place to sit and contemplate for a while.

“A nice catedral on a nice square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The catedral can't be missed when in the old town. It rather big when compared to other buildings. It's simple inside and modest outside. In general, hothing extra ordinary, but still a site worth visitng or stopping by on the Plaza nearby.

“Quite a site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a beautiful cathedral that sticks out of the landscape and can be seen for miles. Great place for pictures with the many "canines" guarding the outside. You can't help running into this if you walk in Vagueta.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This cathedral is really lovely inside, with gilded statues, paintings and pictures. The only thing to dislike was the common practice of using fake candles for offerings.

“Simple Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Surprisingly simple architecture. Some beautiful manuscripts on display and a pretty little garden area. The view from the tower is worth the effort and makes getting to know the city easier.
