When I arrived at the cathedral I had some trouble getting attention of the person selling tickets as he was very busy talking to a friend. I paid the entrance fee plus an additional one euro to allow me to take photos. This included an audio guide but I had to go back to try to get the attention of... More

The arquitecture has a blend of styles that is very attractive. Look at the romanesque dome and the choir chairs. There was an interessting art exhibition spread over various churches.

I know most of the cathedrals of Spain know, and must say this is up there. Smaller in size than Leon or Toledo, it makes up for it with wonderful frescos and a dome that was to inspire others around the rest of Spain (e.g. Salamanca). The tapestries of the Trojan wars and fresco of St Christopher blew us away.

Like many cathedrals this place was a cool escape from the hot summer day. We felt the exterior was more memorable but still worthy of a visit.

The Cathedral of Zamora is considered as one of the most important examples of the Romanesque architecture in Spain, and has been erected in between the years 1151 and 1174. He remains in between the old city walls of Zamora, a very nice example of fine architecture. You have to get a list with the opening hours at the Tourist... More

Cathedral is rather dull on the inside, though impressive from outside. The highlight is the medieval tapestries of Greek legends on the second floor above the courtyard. Take care to study them. The individual characters' names are on each tapestry to help you understand the stories they tell.

I fully expected to walk into one of the typical cathedrals of Europe with a high vaulted ceiling, a long nave and stained glass windows along the sides. I found instead a very compact and delightful cathedral that was welcoming rather than overwhelming. Aided by a listening device, every visitor is able to discover the features of this ancient house... More

The cathedral has a most unusual Byzantine style dome worth capturing on camera. Within there are some splendid paintings and sculptures. One should not miss the wonderful tapestries which a very well preserved and most colourful.
