Visit the Chapel of Santa Orosia and study paintings that depict the life of the cathedral's patron saint.

  • The Cathedral style Romanesque, Chi Rho at the main entrance. But the secret that keeps the Cathedral of Jaca is the Museum of Romanesque art. A true spectacle of Romanesque art. Guides for visits of authentic luxury. Visit obliged.

  • We took a guided tour of the Cathedral and Diocesan Museum, a very instructive visit was since the guide who accompanied us explained to us in detail everything that we were looking at, creating a very educational visit.
