We had a local guide who pointed so many things out to us. Have a guide or audio tour or you will miss much of the fascinating cathedral.

This Cathedral really worth it, there is a museum inside as well as patios, the audio guia is a must. You can easily spend close than an hour to look all.

Visited in my way to Santiago. This is a peculiar building. I was told that it was supposed to have 2 towers, but finally got one due to a lack of budget.
