“A real surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

One of the starting points of the Camino Santiago - looks very basic from the outside, but glorious vaulted ceilings inside - well worth a peek.

“Frescos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

The museum has recently been re-opened, and its collection is superb. Best of all are the medieval frescos from village churches around Jaca.

The cathedral is nothing special, but it houses the Diocesan Museum with a splendid collection of romanesque art.
