In 1992 we visited the Cathedral in January and visited the Nativity model. Very impressive and detailed.

At the back of the choir there is a spectacular sculpture of the Pieta, a copy of Michelangelo's statue in St. Peter's. This statue was made in the early part of the 20th century by an unknown artist. During the Civil War in 1936, the statue was broken and thrown away. Later it was repaired by the Guadix artist Maria Angeles Lazaro and now is found in the Cathedral. The Cathedral is magnificent, with many good works of art.

Guadix Cathedral also known as Cathedral of the Incarnation is of Roman Catholic denomination & believed to be one of the oldest dioceses in Spain. Construction began in the 16th Century, work stopped in 1574 for a couple of decades due to financial issues & completed in the mid-18th Century.

There are several architectural styles displayed: Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance & Neo-Classical. Most of the cathedrals structure & external appearance dates from the 18th Century. The pulpits & intricately carved choir stalls are impressive.

The cathedral museum displays a good selection of gold, silver, robes, mitres & other religious items.

Once negotiating the steps at the entrance the remainder of the building is wheelchair/disabled & pushchair friendly. I do not recall if there is a ramp at the entrance.

There is a small gift shop at the point of admission selling religious associated paraphernalia. To the left of this area are limited public toilets including l believe disabled facilities.

Admission fees apply. My wife & l were part of a pre-arranged trip encompassing cathedral admission, though l am led to believe adult admission is €5.00. Guided tours are available. Also audio guides in the visitors preferred language. Photography is allowed.

Even with tourists/visitors frequenting this venue, there is always a quiet spot to take oneself away from the hustle & bustle of the traffic outside & enjoy the tranquility of this impressive building.

Car parking is limited around this venue. Park further away & walk is probably the better option.

Irrespective of religious beliefs or denominations, Guadix Cathedral is a magnificent building encompassing different architectural influences & is well worth a visit.

Was it intentional, or just happened since the reddish-orange sandstone was handy, I never will know. Whatever the builder wants, the result is phenomenal. Poor Alcazaba also has a similar color, but nobody is visiting it, nobody talking about it, notwithstanding that its predecessor was about a thousand years old when the church was finished. Both of them was built on the place some Muslim construction, as it used to be in Spain. The church on the ruins of a mosque, the Alcazaba on the ruins of a former Moorish fortress.
The Cathedral of the Incarnation is luckier since it still has visitors, but the fortress is entirely abandoned. Sure, the church is more impressive with its mostly Baroque, partly Renaissance and Gothic style architecture, with the bell tower where the visitors with enough stamina and some money can climb up. With these, the fortress can’t compete.
Behind the Cathedral are statues, “Chidden singers of the Cathedral.” They indeed sang false, and because of that, they had to hide at the rear of the church.

Beautiful building with interesting statutes in a white stone offering an attractive contrast to the main building in red sandstone. It was close when we were there but if the outside is anything to go by them I am sure the inside must be just as nice. It sits on a hill overlooking the town and is next to the tourist office. Can be difficult to park there so park in the main street and walk up.

As cathedrals go, a bit lacking but interesting nontheless. Don't be too concerned if you don't get to do in.

Wonderful architecture from the outside, a truly fascinating building. Unfortunately, as the Spanish people seem to have a difficulty in working a normal day, as we arrived at 1-00pm, it was closed.

Cathedral had a very interesting museum attached but the highlight of our visit was the views from the bell tower. Well worth the 150 or so steps.

The cathedral can only be entered via the museum. Entrance fee is required. The church has a nice inside dome. Outside is more spectacular.
