The only way to access the Cathedral is to purchase a €4 ticket which provides access to the building plus the adjoining cloister and the adjacent museum. The Cathedral itself is simple and elegant. It is stripped back to reflect its original Romanesque origins which...More

As a wheel chair user I don’t expect easy access to really old places. The ramps into the cloister, through which you enter the cathedral on non mass days, are vertiginous. The capitols of the columns have interesting carvings. You also enter the Diocesan Museum...More

This cathedral keeps its Romanesque style as there was no money to update it to Gothic or Baroque. Most of the frescos are now in Barcelona or NY or Boston or LA so not much left to see.
