Do not try to rush this visit. The Catedral is very beautiful and huge. So much to look at and take in.

“Excellent detour from the shops”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I liked everything it had to offer, the artefacts, pictures and costumes. You can also go downstairs to see the tombs which are very interesting. Reasonably priced and it doesn't take much time to go round.

“Overwhelming scale and detail but quiet reflection still possible”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

While travelling in Europe it is possible to become "churched out" but this is one not to miss. The scale and detail of the Cathedral can sometimes be overwhelming but it is still possible to enjoy a quiet moment of reflection here. No photography is allowed and this is enforced. Recommend seeing the Capilla Real too if you have time so you can go down into the Crypt.

“Impressive”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The Cathedral is a magnificent and imposing building surrounded by narrow streets, other churches, restaurants and shops. The Chapel is breathe taking. We arrived just before a service was due to take place so was all lit up. Unfortunately, we didn't get to go into the Cathedral itself but from the outside the architecture is very Gothic and imposing. Well worth a visit.
