  • For a small town, the cathedral is very nice next to Gaudi's palace. Inside the audio guide explains everything very well

  • A beautiful cathedral with a lot of charm, the workers who provide service at the entrance offer you guided tour with a controller that telling you what is everything describes it in several languages.

  • It's a cathedral pimp. Impressive Gothic style q intoxicates her. Place to contemplate, if you doubt any.

  • €5 to enter but we only had half an hour before it closed so not enough time. Impressive from the outside. The carvings around the main door are stunning. The attention to detail on the clothing and the women's dresses took someone a long time to do. There is no prayer chapel here. There is a church across the road that has evening prayers.
  • An amazing place. Such an incredibly beautiful day. Missed the Gaudi museum just by, but will go back some day.
  • Beautiful church. Many chapels with astounding altars. Interesting artifacts in the church museum. It's nice that the altars illuminate as you get near and it does not cost you 1 euro per altar as in many other churches.
  • There is a good audio tour giving a bit of context for the lovely old objects and architecture. It can be set in a few languages. The museum is well laid out. The cathedral is splendid.
  • Another of the beautiful churches that punctuate the Camino.
