Catedral de Cuenca, Cuenca

(3.6/5 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.

  • An impressive cathedral which has a great number of chapels of different sizes and styles. The price is not very high, but I don't think it is normal to have to pay to see a cathedral. For the same price it has audio-guide that expliaca enough, but does not explain all the chapels or altarpieces (nor a sad sign with the year or the author or something).

  • I went back to remember, 25 years later, the little that has evolved here. It is not necessary to place in the door a dog of prey to evade visits. If you do not want us to visit the Cathedral, which closed it and point.

  • Surprises when you enter you can not imagine what's inside... Worth to visit it

  • Very nice Cathedral to visit

  • 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
