“Truly awe inspiring”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

The Cathedral of Segovia is another stunning representative of the incredible artistry of the old world cathedral builders. This is such a pretty place and should not be missed. They pipe in soft, classical music that really set the mood. When I visited, I was lucky that there weren't a lot of people, so it almost felt like I had the place to myself and was able to sit in quiet reflection without distraction.

“Awful presence of God”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Standing prominent at the Plaza Mayor, you can miss it, its gothic structure and tower, probably taller than the basilica of St Peter in citia Vaticano, its best sight of its grandness should be viewed from the torre of Alcazar castle

“Amazing ancient church”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

The 3E admission charge was definitely worth the price. Even if one doesn't go inside, just viewing the church from the outside provides one with a sense of the tremendous abilities of people from many centuries ago.

“Amazing Cathedral”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

On this trip we saw the Cathedrals in Leon,Salamanca,Toledo,Madrid,and Zaragoza, but Segovia was marginally the most impressive. A beautiful building which stands out a little ahead of the other wonderful Cathedrals of Spain.

“Beautiful church”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

Must go to the Cathedral of Segovia. Beautiful alters, frescos and ceilings. Its a short walk from the aqueduct and shouldn't take more than five minutes but well worth the effort.
