Catedral de Cuenca, Cuenca

3.8
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Province of Cuenca
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.

    Very nice. Within the old part of the city. You can climb with tourist train or walking. If you don't have vertigo road which passes through the spectacular bridge.

    I refused to enter and pay the entrance of €4.80 having seen a huge cross dedicated to the dictator Primo de Rivera on the right side. SHAMEFUL! You should not enter anyone.

    Although a little expensive input (4.50€) is a must-see for those who visit basin, the audio guide has a good and concise information. Beautiful contemporary stained-glass windows.

  • 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
