The cathedral is very interesting. However the audioguide (at least the italian one) was full of religious music and descriptions, unuseful to the tourist. The movements from one point to another one are not correctly indicated. We had to walk through the cathedral twice in...More

First of all, I'm not a religious man... but once you step inside, you can't help but understand why so many are believers. It's simply stunning. 100, 300 or even a thousand years from now, this buildings' architecture will continue to mesmerise visitors. No shame...More

Very opulent. Typical of Catholic church. Average entrance cost, and whilst audio guide was included in the entrance fee, we found the commentary too verbal and difficult to follow.

There had to be a lot of money in Spain at the time to build another Cathedral like this one. Really beautiful. This is a must see. The audio guides are worth the investment. I will take an hour or so.

We did not visit the Cathedral but we did see the Royal Chapel. There is a nice art collection after seeing the tombs of Isabel and Fernando.

It is undeniably a historically important place with a very vital historic attachment. However the customer service leaves much to be desired. I paid for my tickets and at the entry point, at the big rack where the floor plan brochures are available, Since I...More

Visited in May. 5 Euro entrance fee. Includes audio guides which were helpful. Sometimes the info bites were a bit too long. Numbers do not go in order as you walk around. Beautiful dome. Spend no more than an hour here. The Royal cathedral has...More

The cathedral is in the middle of a busy shopping and restaurant area. I did not see any parking lots. Walking is the best way to go. Bus stop is "cathedral" on Grand Via and cathedral is just few steps away. Check for... More
