This old church was just beautiful! We snuck in during a rain storm, and there was a mass going. While I am not Catholic, it was a beautiful experience.

The Cathedral itself is spectacular but the exhibits on its history and the history of Alcala de Henares are as impressive. They really helped us get a good feel for how this town developed.

Aside from the spectacular architecture and the story of the cathedral's history, there were exhibits on the history of Alcala that helped us understand how the town came to be. The hours may be inconvenient, but it was definitely worth waiting around to see.
