thank god the money ran out when constructing the new cathedral in Plasencia...this way, we can still enjoy parts of the old one. Don´t forget to walk around the cathedral to see the façade by Diego de Siloé!

“You have to love churches and history to find this fab.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Just as lovely as expected. We walked around and left a good donation as I am sure they depend on tourist money.

“Unusual and worth a visit”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The altarpiece is impressive and there are some fine columns. However, the Cathedral does not really make an effort to show itself in its best light. There are some interesting choir stalls, covered in dust, with cables running around and a general sense of untidiness and neglect. The area for private prayer is cordoned off with a screen that is completely out of keeping with the rest of the church.
