One of the best cathedrals we visited, in Spain. Be sure to get the audio guide, and take your time to really see all the detail. They practice crowd control, allowing only a certain number of people at a time. This is good, so that...More

This Gothic Cathedral with the prevailing Romanesque style details was built on the old mosque in 12th century. And the Main Chapel is a mixture of transition of the Gothic to the Renaissance. The beautiful choir is located in the center of the Cathedral, in...More

One of the most important tourist attractions of Cuenca. The road to the cathedral is made on the narrow streets of the old town

We spent over an hour visiting and still didn't see it all. The cost for seniors is 4 euro & others 4.80 euros. Well worth it. Included is an audio guide to explain the rooms. A very impressive sculpture of the Last Supper didn't have...More

This Cathedral is very unusual in so far as it has a strange history of being built, partially destroyed, rebuilt and destroyed again before it was built to the standard that it is at present. Such a checkered history makes it totally unique and extremely...More
