Episcopal Palace, Astorga

4.5
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Astorga
The exteriors alone are worth the visit at Episcopal Palace, a Gothic palace filled with religious and historical artwork as well as an Episcopal museum. The architecture of the building itself is breathtaking, with colorful stained-glass windows, and the sculptures in the gardens are a highlight, too. Inside, a few of the artists featured include Francisco Herrera el Viejo, Francisco Pacheco, Zurbarán, and Murillo. Some of the documents in the library date back to the 14th century.

    The episcopal Palace and the gardens are very nice, and we haven't stopped to take pictures. The architecture is beautiful, and the exposed content will allow you to be a good fun time. The entrance is cheap. As only downside, that made miss a guide, but still highly recommended.

    A building that is surprising to find down the Avenue, is a lovely, delicate construction... Sit awhile in the placita and observe the details is worth.

  • Another Gaudi's marvelous building... it deserve a visit.
  • Very beautiful. Entrance to museum 3.5 euros.
  • Very interesting Gaudi building. ....Although he did not complete this building.
  • This episcopal palace (which looks like a castle) was started by architect Antoni Gaudi. It's fun to look through. There's a beautiful chapel inside and a lot to look at. You can purchase a combination ticket for this site and the museum next door to the Church.
  • Unique bishop's house designed by Gaudi. Entrance ticket combine the cathedral.
