Owner description: One of the most imposing cathedrals in Spain, and a superb example of Gothic architecture.
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We have visited many cathedrals, and this is one of the most impressive and beautiful. From both outside and inside. Interior is huge, altar very beautiful (not garrish), wonderful art from El Greco and other masters. We happened to be there on one of the summer nights when they do the sound & light show on the outside. Spectacular! Big crowd turned out. Better than any fireworks display we've ever seen. If you are there at the right time, don't miss it.

The scale, beauty and richness of this cathedral is truly mind blowing. It may be a 13th century construction, but it is still as glorious. Words do not suffice to describe how grand this building is, both from the thousands of detailed motifs on the outside, to the masterpiece sculptures and frescoes that decorate the inside. Definitely a must-visit if you are staying in Madrid - well worth the journey.

We were amazed by the amount of gold and silver within this structure. Between the main altar, statuary and crowns, chalices, etc. on display the country's deficit could be paid off if all were sold.

As an aside, the best shopping is actually a two places. One is he store that pertains to the Cathedral and is directly across its entrance. By far, it the lowest prices and a very good selection. The store vendors in town are almost double the price!
