“Vast and different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Rather vast and built in varying style throughout the ages, it is slightly more interesting than a `typical` european gothic cathedral.

“Lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

The Catholic priest whipping the Lutheran Prostitute was a very dislikeable statue unfortunate in theses ecumenical times .The considerable amount of modern coloured glass windows was impressive

“Nice but unremarkable cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

I may be suffering from 'cathedral fatigue' after having seen several others in Spain, but this cathedral was not very interesting to me. That said, the main altar is very nice and many of the side chapels are beautifully done, so it might be worth a quick visit if you are into cathedrals. They do offer an audioguide, but I did not use one so can't comment on whether that enhances the experience.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

So much to see and hear about if you use the audio guide. The stained glass windows create a wonderful atmosphere and the mixture of the historic building withe the modern glass really works well.

“Stained glass to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Definitely worth a visit- the architecture is fantastic. I suggest getting the audioguide as it gives you some helpful facts! No bathroom that I could find!
