“Amazing”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Impressive catedral, even if you are not religious. It´s big, imponent and beatiful. Unfortunately, we missed the religious service for the pilgrims. A friend told us that it is very interenting.

“Impressive and you need not be a Catholic to think so”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Very interesting from all angles and distances.

There is a roof top tour that is unique and of course you have to go into the cathedral and down the stairs to view what is believed to be the bones of St. James.

“A world landmark”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

There's not much more to say than what everybody knows.
This is an unforgettable place even if some tourists do not respect the place and go around taking photos everywhere, without any respect for the faithful.
Try to go when everybody is busy elsewhere.

“Second time around but still touching!!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

This place is a beautiful and magnificent piece of architecture. I love the sorroundings but when inside you feel the peace and can see the power of the catholic church thru the years. My favorite thing to do is watch the pilgrims when they get to see the Cathedral, you can share their joy and sense of accomplishment. When the go up the stairs to the main entrance, its like the end of an exhausting crusade and the embrace of the new beginning..... Highly recommended....
