Zamora cathedral is one of the few Spanish cathedrals that has not been rebuilt in Gothic style, and preserves the Romanesque style. You have to pay 5 euros for admission, but that includes an audio guide (not great) and the cathedral museum - and a...More

This small cathedral has a good museum which is well worth seeing. However the highlight is the stunning altar. The central main section is relatively plain but it is flanked by a happy nativity scene and a crucifixion scene. The latter is the most incredible...More

We stayed in Toro, but took the bus to Zamora, so it took us a while to actually find the cathedral - signage in the tourist area is not very good. But it was worth the trek!

Very interesting museum and tour. Worth the 5€. Went to Mass at 10am. The giant monstrance and silver altar were the most impressive to me. The bathroom was not very clean. They do have a nice little gift shop.

It costs €5 per person to go round this Cathedral. You get a hand held speaker in English (or probably any other language) and this gives you every detail of the Cathedral. It is worth every euro to see this magnificent building. I noticed it...More

Having seen so many cathedrals in Spain, almost gave this one a miss. That would have been a mistake. This off-the-beaten-track cathedral has a museum which has tremendous tapestries about Hannibal and the Trojan Wars. The 12th century cathedral is a delight. Great craftsmanship and...More

We visited the cathedral on a sunday, just before one o'clock, apparently mass time. Went on nevertheless, and found a beautiful cathedral. In the museum lots of clerical objects. On the first floor several fantastic flemish tapestries.
