Beautiful cathedral worth a visit. Be aware that there is a 3 hour line up to see the portico. Many shops and restaurants surrounding cathedral are same same and costly. Go further away to get better value for money.
The cathedral is awesome. I can't visit the portico due the waiting time is closed to 5 hrs. But inside the cathedral offered a lots a history. We can take pictures ( no flash).
I recommend this place you can't leaves the city without view...More
The cathedral is great but at first glance a lot of people queue at the entrance to the Portico of Glory, as did we. They seem to let about 25 people per 20 minutes inside. We waited until I did some calculations and it would...More
We spend 3 days in Compostela and the cathedral is the most important part of our trip. The experience will stay with me for ever. The botafumeiro is the one thing you will never see anywhere in the world.
Apart from being a beautiful cathedral and attending a wonderful mass there, we bought tickets to the rooftop tour, offered throughout the day at different times.
It lasted about one hour, and we had an absolutely fantastic guide who gave us a fabulous history lesson...More
If you are in Santiago the cathedral is the number one attraction as attested by the throngs of people and pilgrims. The best thing that there was a wedding on across from the cathedral bagpipes and all. The tourist office is nearby. A "train ride"...More
This is a very large and busy complex. Do your homework before trying to visit. The cathedral museum is very informative with toilet facilities. There is a public water closet across the main square down the ramp to the left at the police station. To...More
We booked the rooftop tour appreciating it would be in Spanish only but still looking forward to this as the spiritual highlight of our month’s journey round northern Spain.
Sadly the only time the non-Spanish speakers were addressed during the visit was when being threatened...More
We nearly did not attend a service, but trust me, it is a must attend to end your Camino on a high. The cathedral on its own is beautiful with so much history. The service was also beautiful and will leave you with a good...More
I do not know what I was thinking! The roof top tour sounded like such a good idea and if you have the constitution of a mountain goat (as nearly all of my fellow visitors seemed to have) then this is an incredible opportunity to...More
It’s better to book on line before you go. There was a queue when went in May. I checked it’s the same price as at the counter. Tickets were sent to you by email, you can load it onto your mobile and use it for scans at the... More

Sorry for the delay in replying, yes, it is worth buying into the Museum. It is a quieter diversion if the cathedral is busy, and there is an open veranda walk at roof level, plus lots of little niches and corners to explore.
