  • The visit is worthwhile, especially Tuesday afternoon, since it is free. That Yes, we must expect a significant queue to the Sun.

  • It is one of the most typical of the city. I have to pay entry for access, there are also guided tours. If it is not purchased input is accessible at the entrance of the Cathedral and the Chapel, which is located to the left.

  • It is a beautiful Gothic Cathedral that is a must visit and photograph. Inside is the tomb of el Cid. If possible, go to the main entrance in time point to see the flycatchers in movement.

  • 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.
  • Very nice place and good environment. A must see
  • Beautiful cathedral with comprehensive audio guide. Worth a visit!
  • Took a day off walking the Camino in hopes of seeing Bugos. Instead we spent entire time, back in time inside the Cathedral.
  • Very beautiful cathedral. This is where one of the greatest heroes of Spain, El Cid stays forever.
