  • Huge cathedral, cloisters, and museum. Very interesting and well worth a visit. Allow 1 1/2 - 2 hours to properly see it all. Exhibits in the museum were well laid out and explained, albeit mostly....  more »
  • combines both the old with the modern, this church has a museum that is worth visiting, it is very impressive to be standing in such old churches with such history and art masterpieces  more »

  • It’s Europe, there are lots of cathedrals and churches. This is a nice one. If you speak Spanish, the exhibition inside (there is a museum) is probably great. They have certainly designed it well, with state of the art architecture and technology. However it’s only in Spanish, so for us English speaking lot, pretty to look at, totally irrelevant experience however. Probably don’t bother if you have done churches in Europe already but if you visit, it’s nice.
  • Worth the entrance fee. Very interesting interior and a great museum showing the Cathedral excavations and its development over the years. I liked the holographic organist. The cloisters and refectory are being fully restored but you can still visit them.
