Catedral de Cuenca, Cuenca

(3.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
The specific Gothic architecture of the 12th-century Catedral de Cuenca may seem a little out of place in Castile. Inspired by Richard the Lionheart’s sister, Eleanor Plantagenet, who married Castilian King Alfonso VIII, it’s Anglo-Norman in style. The 20th-century facade may lead you to think that the cathedral is smaller than it really is. On the inside, you’ll find lots of light and enormous dimensions. Be sure to get the audio guide. Catedral de Cuenca is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Cuenca Edition.

  • Note that basin is striving to attract tourism, and among other things can be seen in the improvement of the conditions to visit the Cathedral, besides that they have cleaned, and improved the interior and exterior lighting. It price, € 3.70 that includes the apparatus that you goes counting all the corners of the Cathedral, not is can tell that is expensive. It is a visit that is worthwhile. If you go in winter, sees well sheltered.

  • By 3.80 is the buy with audio-guide included, is worth this visit that approx. 1 hour to this Gothic Cathedral from the 12th century lasts

  • We just saw it from the outside, but it is something impossible to enjoy and make photo since cars are going on all the time and it is a hindrance. The plaza as a whole is very good, with the coloured houses. But could improve the passing cars...

  • Very nice Church

  • Striking out due to its differences with the rest of cathedrals that exist in Spain. Inside I can not comment because I think it is a glut, which charge 8 euros to enter
