We love old churches and cathedrals so this was a must see. Down to the shrine to "our lady" and the Goya relief on one part of the ceiling. The usual wander around all the different chapesl and interesting to watch a service whilst tourists...More

Amazingly beautiful structure. You could spend an hour enjoying the intricacies of this basilica which includes some Goya artwork. No photos are allowed inside.

Fantastic building especially from the outside. Not the most impressive inside - big, cavernous but not Notre Dame/Sacre Couer/the Duoma/St Peters etc but still worthy of a peak. Best thing though is the view from the tower, a must. Only 3 euro and we were...More

The wood and stone craftsmanship is very impressive. The included audio guide is very informative. The plaza outside is also very nice to sit and enjoy.

This is a huge cathedral. Bring some info before you visit it. There is nothing inside to read. There were confession services in the afternoon. A good part of the decoration was made by Goya.

Free entry. Threatened with camera ban but no one seemed to object to photos being taken. Probably one of the most impressive church's that I have been into in Spain, having said that most are shut except during high days and holy days.

A different style of cathedral from those in Madrid. Inside was absolutely gorgeous. We were lucky enough to visit during mass, and were able to hear the amazing acoustics at work. There were more areas open than in most churches. Admission was free.

One of the beautiest cathedrals in the world. Wonderful paintings from Francisco de Goya. And an incredible museum filled with people's presents as a testimony of their devotion.

Don't drive. Find somewhere on the edge of town to park and take the tram.
