Do not miss seeing this amazing cathedral. It will simply amaze you. The early Spaniards had amazing craftsmanship. So much too see. Late afternoon when the sun is setting it glows inside. Go up the tower too.

A great Cathedral both inside and out. The are so many nooks and crannies to see in this Cathedral. Take you time and read all the history. Well worth the visit.

The new cathedral is connected to the old one and is a grand building on a vast scale. It is an incredible building and worth every cent of the entry fee.

What can I say this visit to the cathedral was excellent the pure size of it and the interior took my breath away. I have been all over the world but have never seen a church as well preserved as this.

After the plaza mayor, the new cathedral is the atraction of Salamanca. They have free portable audible aids that describe each detail of the cathedral. It's very beautiful but in normal terms when compared with other cathedrals in Europe.

We spent hours in this magnificent cathedral with its abundance of rooms. The entry fee seems reasonable considering the massive amount to see, the accompanying audio guide and the quality of the religious work. Check out the massive organ.

If you only see 1 thing in Salamanca this should be it. Make sure you take the audio guide to get the most of your tour. Filled with beautiful relics, paintings and sculptures, think of it as a lesson in Art History.

Built around 1600-1700, if I recall correctly, the new cathedral is really old to us. But, the relics and art with the sense that many faithful trod where we stand and fought back the moors add to the awe felt. The town is known for being a repository of knowledge. Even in Cervantes's time this was acknowledged. This adds to... More
