  • The Cathedral is beautiful, in the Plaza Mayor, has a viewpoint from the bell tower where the view is spectacular. It is worthwhile to go and above all that tell you the stories of the Saints. Charm me.

  • Made almost entirely of stone, with thick walls that arman his 3 ships. Don't forget to visit the Museum inside which gives a tour of their facilities, coming up to the Bell Tower. At Easter, here comes the spectacular procession of the risen Christ, an experience not to be missed
