The cathedral is number three of the big Spanish cathedrals. We have chosen a day at which the entrance to the church is free. A mass was celebrated, in this way and because of restauration works inside the Cathedral we couldn't visit it at all....More

For history and culture lovers this place is a must. It cost a little entrance fee but it is worth the money what you will get to see. We were very impressed and we are used to visit monuments and historical sites.

At the Cathedral you can buy a combined ticket for the Cathedral plus the Roof Tops visit. The roof top visit is escorted and lasts about an hour. You get amazing views of the city and see the many domes from above. We loved it.

The cathedral is enormous and beautiful. Plus they had an amazing nativity display for Christmas. The cost to enter the cathedral is 6 euros. Small children are free. They have audio guides that will give you the history of the cathedral.

This is an amazing building, but generally most catholic cathedrals are. It’s definitely worth €6 for a visit and tour of the roof, beware of the 200 steps though.
