The inside is just stunnig. The senior rate is 4 euros, and well worth the money. All cathedrals are beautiful inside, but this one is especially fine. With the price of admission, they have audio devices to describe all the features and chapels.

Amazing facades; beautifully intricate and they look even better when lit at night. Don’t forget to look for the astronaut carved into the façade! Entrance was 4.00€. The huge New Cathedral is light and airy with many side chapels. It also contains the most beautifully carved choir stalls that I have ever seen. Stunning! The old cathedral contains some ancient...

yes the building is impressive, the archtecture and internal atmosphere, imagery and adornments, including the double organ but...listening to a list of artists and dates via the headphone set is rather uninteresting..will catherdrals please have a rethink

One entry ticket means you can visit both the old and new cathedrals are they are joined together. We took the audio guide which was packed with information, if a little on the pompous side! The interior is magnificent and I would say it is a 'must see' on any visit to gorgeous Salamanca.

You cannot come to Salamanca and not visit this stunning gothic and baroque monument. It is just magnificent. A free audio guide is provided and the less that 5 euros tickets allows visit also to the old cathedral of Romanesque to early gothic style. The dimension of this place is awe-inspiring and will literally take your breath away.

When we got to the new cathedral it was closed we could only walk round the outside but we were very impressed with the facade.

What a great city to visit. The new cathedral is still 500 years old! With the older one adjoining it too. Beautiful and so interesting. Highly recommended!

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.
