This is a nice cathedral. The organ is insanely large and the monestary section is beautiful. It's not going to top visits to the more well-known cathedrals in Europe, but it's worth visiting if you are in Tarragona for sure.

This has got to be one of the most impressive cathedrals in Spain. It's absolutely vast, with many nooks and crannies, each more beautiful than the last.

Now that open again, it is worth stepping in and looking at the splendour of this Cathedral. It is a place for quiet contemplation taking a breath, from the city life outside.

I've been to many cathedrals during my travels I must say the this cathedral is one of the best. Easy to spend an hour or so wandering around the main building and out into the cloisters

From the outside, the Catedral Basilica looks grand and stately. Once inside, the sheer cavernous size is overwhelming. For 5 euros entrance fee I received a map with an easy to follow route which took me to over 40 sights of interest. Particularly noteworthy are the organ, the cloisters, treasury, main altarpiece, choir stalls and the former canons’ refrectory which today houses an important collection of artifacts found during excavations in/around the cathedral. I spent close to two hours visiting.
