Built in the 1500's, this is a good example of late Gothic architecture. It was great to see it as part of our tour of Segovia and Avila, but it was not the highlight. Sadly at some point I get cathedral exhaustion. A beautiful building but not particularly special when you have seen others in Europe.

I had recently been to the cathedral in Valencia and was looking forward to visiting the one in Segovia. From the outside and views around the city the cathedral looks amazing. However inside I was disappointed. It is very dark and so so cold. There are some beautiful paintings and glass windows but the place to me felt it needed... More

When you go to Segovia you must make the effort and find the cathedral. The building is wonderful. I wanted to stay and look at it for hours and you can do that if you have a coffee or lunch in the beautiful square next to the cathedral. Inside it is nice. Be aware that you have to pay €3....

The last Gothic cathedral to be built in Spain. The size is immense and one requires at least an hour to explore. There are 18 Chapels inside.

Truly one of the loveliest cathedrals around. The restoration work that has been completed is wonderful.

Huge cathedral with too much gold for my taste. Less impressive than Salamanca or Burgos cathedrals.

I have a mixed experience on this. The cathedral is nice, pretty but not as majestic as the ones in other cities like Toledo, Barcelona etc. So paying the minimal entrance fee to enter was fine. However, what made the trip REALLY UNPLEASANT was that they didn't explain to us properly that there was no english tour for the tower... More

Cathedral is a beautiful and massive gothic building from outside, but nothing special from inside. Just like any other catholic cathedral, so do not wait too much. But definitely worth of seeing at least from outside if you travel in Segovia.
