Beautiful Cathedral
Dec 2020 • Solo
This is a cathedral from the Renaissance, so it is very austere in comparison with the Gothic cathedrals. It has nice chapels with different images of Jesus, Mary and the saints. The statue in the outside is dedicated to Cardinal Cisneros and the two martyrs from the 5th century: Justo and Pastor

Austere old walls
Sep 2019 • Couples
Alcala Cathedral is too impressive from the first sight, but it was still interesting to see its old walls. Not the luckiest cathedral in the world for sure: the fire has destroyed many works of art and great historical religious objects; hence, its solemn and austere look.

Very picturesque bell tower adds charm to the lively Cathedral plaza and is a good photo op.

Very nice cathedral. A good stop if you have time when wondering the streets of Alcala de Henares. Churches are always a nice stoop.

Important as the burial site of Cisneros
May 2018 • Friends
It's worth going into this cathedral to visit the tomb of Cisneros, who was so important to Spain as the founder of the University in Alcalá in the times of Isabel and Ferdinand. It's also the start of the "Student's Route" for the "Camino"--the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

A retreat from the heat

Beautiful cathedral with an interesting history. The tower was off limits due to the storks nesting there but the building is as beautiful outside as inside

An obliged to visit.
Jan 2018 • Couples
After visiting The University and Cervantes birth house my friend and I went to the Cathedral. It is located in the Plaza de los Santos Ninos.
After the Civil War in 1936, the church suffered a major fire, and almost all of the treasures were lost. The name of Cathedral Magistral means that all canons must be doctors of theology.
In the interior of the Cathedral you may find a lot of history and art. It have a Museum and Interpretation Center. In addition, it hosts in the temple a relics of Saints Justo and Pastor and San Diego de Alcalá and the grave sites of Cisneros Cardinal and Archbishop Carrillo de Acuña preserved. The Museum of the Cathedral-Magistral is located in the area of ​​the old Chapter-house.

This old church was just beautiful! We snuck in during a rain storm, and there was a mass going. While I am not Catholic, it was a beautiful experience.

Another beautiful place
Dec 2016 • Friends
We went here with our Spanish friends . We were offered an English speaking electronic guide when we went inside as we don't understand Spanish but we didn't take it as we had our friends with us. The cathedral was absolutely stunning. It had like a small museum in a room at the back with some items that had been there from the 1400's upto the 1900's they were so beautiful. It wasn't busy and we weren't being rushed by anyone. I would visit again just to take in the beauty of the place. Not sure it's a great place for people visiting with children because you have to be very quiet.
