There are many Cathedral,s throughout Europe but I must say this one is really exceptional in many ways Both the old and new are well worth a visit

This was a pleasant interlude but I have seen many more striking Cathedrals in Spain. Anoyingly they charge for entrance.

Beautiful Cathedral, along with the Catedral Neuva. Fantastic value for money at 5 euros per person to visit both cathedrals. If this was in the UK, you would pay £20-25

About an hour to tour this beautiful old cathedral right on the Plaza Mayor. The 5€ tour is well worth it. Our guide had interesting and at times amusing stories about Salamanca and the cathedral and it's history.

There are two cathedrals attached. Both are amazing and if you can you should do the guided visit. With this visit we learn a lot of history of art.

It was a good experience seeing the old cathedral, it is very simple but in the very best sense definitely worth seeing

It was stunning both inside and outside! The cathedral is visible from the whole city but you definitely have to go inside! There's an audio component that comes with admission that gives some history

This beautiful medieval cathedral is well worth a visit while in Salamanca. There is an audio tour which explains the details of the various chapels that line the walls of the church. It connects to the "new" cathedral, which was consecrated in 1783. Your admission...More

We were there in January and there was no line Even it there was a line it would be worth is because it is beautiful and we loved the tour to the steeple and viewing the rooftop of the cathedral and city.

Not certain but as a previous answer mentioned, services will be held over the Easter period. I would doubt that the usual tour will be running.
