You need three hours to take in the fantastic architecture and art on display here. We were bowled over by its beauty and state.

No wonder it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site! It's a lovely impressive cathedral filled with history...While walking around the spectacular inside, be sure to see the grave of El Cid... Look up and note the gorgeous architecture!

This is a site not to be missed. Had a guide who was brilliant and informative which made it even better. The artwork and detail is unheard of. Wish I had more time to look around. Beggars outside cathedral were a nuisance

A vast Gothic Catholic Cathedral in the centre of the old town which has grown in size over period of 3 centuries. There are many beautifully preserved Capillas around the central naive and cloisters under which El Sid lies buried. Powerful and impressive.....

There is a lot to see in this Cathedral (including the burying place of El Cid), and the audio guide is quite good. It includes options for going deeper in the explanations for various areas. Don't rush through it, and if possible, take some time to pray and contemplate the blessing of being in such a glorious place.
