Lovely cathedral, very nice and medieval. One of the nicest I’ve ever seen. We only went into the reception area as we didn’t have time to pay for a good look around. Worth a good luck. People try to sell you guided tours.

Good value €7 entry including audio guide. Amazing and well preserved. Has many features now seen in other Spanish churches. Add this to El CID tomb and coffin and it’s a winner. Allocate at least an hour to see this place.

A really impressive piece of architecture from 'Old Spain'. It's in the centre of this old city, full of history and with a great sense of tradition. Plenty of little old cafe bars nearby also for that full old world charm.
