It's easy to get "cathedralled out" in Andalucia, but this is one of the best. The audio guide is excellent and interesting, and the interior of the central nave worth seeing. The trip up the tower is, however, something else. It's claustrophobic in places and...More

With so many fabulous churches in Spain this does not justify the entrance fee unless you are a professional church visitor

This was apparently named one of the 12 "Treasures of Spain" in a national survey. The cathedral is beautiful, with a tower you can climb to spectacular views. Also has a gorgeous cloister.

Baeza's main cathedral is definitely worth visiting. Be sure to use the audio guide to get in-depth history in the church and its many chapels and climb the 170 steps up the tower to get great views of the city.

The cathedral is beautiful and imposing. There is an entrance fee of 4 Euros and for 1 Euro more you can have an audio guide.

quite amazing to have a cathedral in a small town like this and it has to be viewed in that light. Architecturally interesting with lovely paintings and generally impressive.

A museum and an active church means that you have to pay for entry if not visiting on a Sunday. Much of the interior has been restored, but it retains its charm.
