You have to pay a tariff to enter the cathedral but audio guides are given for free, available in a wide range of languages. Really pretty in the inside, a must see if you go to Bilbao

This is a 14th century church in Gothic style. The building is attractive outside with an impressive tower, but the interior is very plain and there is not much of real interest. On the other hand, visiting the church interior is free unless you wish...More

Catedral de Santiago is one of the religious buildings located in the old town of Bilbao, in the North part of Iberian Peninsula. It is a beautiful catedral, not more. I recommend you visit it, when you walk around the Casco Viejo (old town). Good,...More

I'm not a religious person but I do enjoy visiting cathedrals to see the architecture, art, treasures, and cloisters. The Catedral de Santiago is worth a look if you're in the area and certainly worth more time if you're interested in the Campostela.

We visited on a Sunday morning. I was surprised to have to pay for entry on a Sunday but hey ho. The cloister was particularly lovely. New organ, but unfortunately not used for the service we attended.

Wonderful building from the outside and very dazzling on the inside. A must see site but do allow an hour to view all its wonders.

When we went looking for this Gothic cathedral in the center of the Old Town, we expected to find something far more grand. In fact, we almost missed the structure, because it was wedged in between two other buildings. To enter, we had to pay...More
