The cathedral is a beautiful, petite representation of Romanic art in Spain. It is worth joining the guided tour, if possible, to learn all about the outside decoration techniques such as the Taqueado Jaques, which would later be copied in Castillian Romanic cathedrals. But the...More

Unfortunately the citadel was closed when we visited so all we could do was walk around the exterior of the moat and walls. That itself was enough to give you a sense of the size and importance of this fortification. A very impressive structure. See...More

Visit the church together with the museum. Both are a treasure of medieval art & architecture. Take enough time (2-3 hours) to visit.

A beautiful old cathedral with free entry. It is being 'cleaned' inside and amazing to see the difference it makes. If you like old buildings and architecture then it's well worth a visit.

Rather dark interior with little light apart from one chapel . The additions made to the church in the later years have spoiled in interior

A clear reference of all the arquitectonic styles of the area, the cathedral took many years to be done so you can se a mix and influences of all the arquitects and styles that influenced Jaca and Aragon in the Medieval Ages.

It is worth visiting this very old and surprisingly small cathedral. The main problem is that most of the interior is in darkness unless someone pays €1 to turn on the lights and then only a small area is lit up. It is interesting both...More
