This basilica was grand but it's heavy baroque style in such a small space was overwhelming. You could actually get close to the Holy Relics so that was very amazing. We got there late and it was almost ready to close. The lady working was so incredibly nice that she let us go through it anyway. We were able to... More

Spain is full of Amazing Cathedrals. Perhaps this may not be the finest, but its certainly worth a visit. Its not as rich and laden with the art of some of its more famous cousins. But that may be one of its charms. A Spiritual Space of quiet and reflection. The Ambulatory nests some truly Spiritual works of art.

Nearly walked past this stunning church - really worth a visit! The gold alter is about 30 feet high surrounded by a dark, but stunning church. I sat mesmerized looking around me, talking in everything. Never seen a church like it!

As another reviewer mentioned, this cathedral is truly under-rated. I was blown away by the beauty of it. It was one of the first cathedrals done in a Renaissance style. The white and gold layered interior look ethereal. It is highly decorated without being overdone (unlike other cathedrals I've seen in Spain). The audioguide is well done and will lead... More

One of the best cathedrals that I have seen . The audio guide provided is excellent and explains everything very interestingly . The grandeur and the pomp of Christianity and the opulence of Spain is impressive . The combination of art and religion is beuatiful . A must see .

From the outside you would have no idea of the grandeur waiting for you inside. Entry is €4, but for that you also get an audio guide, which I would recommend using. The audio tour takes about 30 minutes and provides plenty of detail concerning the basilica and its contents. I have never seen so much gold! Worth a visit.

A typical Spanish cathedral, but with an audio guide included in the admission price. There is a lot to see, but not as impressive as the Mesquita in Cordoba, or typically cathedrals in France or the UK. Note entry here does not include the Royal Chapel, which seemed irritating at the time.

Worth a visit at 5 Euros, which includes the audio guide. It took us over an hour to go round. Easily found by getting off the tourist train at bus stop 8.
