“All Attractions Are Very Close to Each Other”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

After inspecting the area we went to the Old and the Old and New Cathedrals on the street. Rua Major. On the way, considered the church of San Martin, House of shells, the Jesuit College, Convent of Las Dueñas, Dominican monastery of San Esteban, came to the Plaza de Colon.
And so we entered the final straight to the cathedral. If you do not know that these are two different church, you will perceive them as a whole. Huge, majestic and beautiful architectural building.
In the old cathedral entrance fee, a new charge (I think, but not sure, because we did not go inside). We bought tickets for the tower, overlooking a beautiful view over the city and on the part of the cathedral. Also inside was available for viewing the altar of the old cathedral (so-called observation deck).
After the cathedral we went to the university. Entrance fee to the university - 4 euros per person (if you have a student, apparently, cheaper, because we asked that it exists). We quickly ran through the territory, little time remained. By the way, according to a guide called "around the world" on the facade of the building, right, on the column, is a small frog. An old student tradition, it must find, if you want to pass an exam. At the house we found it on. I took photos of closeup of this column, the only way it could find. If interested - tell. But if you go there, you can find it yourself or see on the souvenir toys her whereabouts.
At the end of our route we went to the Dominican monastery of San Esteban. Interesting and beautiful architectural elements. The cost of entry - 2 euros per person.
Unfortunately, we could not get into the convent of Las Dueñas, whether it was closed, or so bad looking for input. But the time we had no choice and we went to the station.

Thank Irunchick
