A beautiful church from the outside. A landmark for pilgrims to Santiago de Compostella. Limited hours for visits during the weekend.

A complicated construction. 2 churches in one, different styles. A camara santa, with relics going back to the 8th century. Only ground floor wheelchair accessible.

If you are in Oviedo seeing the cathedral is close to a must see, simply because it played such a big part in Oviedo's history. There is a 6 euro entrance fee, which includes an audio tour, access to the crypt (not too impressive) and...More
