  • Very interesting architecture, highly detailed and adorned inside. The additional side buildings and garden a surprise too. Good audio guide included with entry fee, discounted for Camino pilgrims. Well worth taking in.
  • Took a day off walking the Camino in hopes of seeing Bugos. Instead we spent entire time, back in time inside the Cathedral.
  • Very nice place and good environment. A must see
  • Beautiful cathedral with comprehensive audio guide. Worth a visit!
  • Rich in religious architecture and history, this truly is the most profound and memorable cathedrals ever to visit!
