    The Cathedral is a must-see for pilgrims and travellers usually passing through Santo Domingo. You have guided (at very specific times, unfortunately, we did not get in time), audio guides and Visual AIDS with photographs and texts explaining the elements highlights of every chapel or corner of the Cathedral. And at any time may surprise you the canto del gallo, which along with the chicken (both white) remind visitors the miracle more famous St. Stephen's from a prominent place within the temple.

    It is not just the opinion of my partner and me, but of the whole group we enjoy guided. All arrival to a certain age, and liking us history and art (still recognizing our "ignorance"), we have seen countless explanations and guided, but which Pedro Miguel has given us in the Cathedral of Santo Domingo will remain in our memory for a long time. The unanimous assessment of the attendees was "the best guided tour that we have enjoyed". It is not only obvious deep knowledge that Pedro Miguel has the history and art in general, and the Cathedral in particular, but on everyone who and how it has. Warned from the beginning that it won't bore you with details and dates, and does it... but if spiders with questions, naturally emerges the overwhelming flow of knowledge available. Initially his serious and clueless air seems to suggest a boring and conventional experience and surprise. Person simple, clear, direct, cultured and expert in the art of public speaking. You understand that what matters is to reach people who listen more than issuing a message that although formally well built not to reach listeners (listeners in the best of cases). The guided visit contents should not speak: for that is the visit. Only advancement that we understood the historical, artistic and architectural key essential building - and step on the of this style in general - and the peculiarities of its history: the rooster and hen, altarpiece... Who visit Santo Domingo and not visit the Cathedral make a mistake. If it is explained by Pedro Miguel you will remember it long. Thank you, Pedro Miguel, and to Pastor Francisco and Abbot Charles for his perseverance in maintenance, dissemination and care of this heritage so beautiful and delicate, and for letting us enjoy this with this luxury Guide.

  • Amazing. Two lives Chechen are kept here permanently. Come to see the amazing stone carving housing an effigy of San Domingo
  • amazing place rich of history.
  • The Cathedral is spectacular with its mix of styles. What left me cold was the Cathedral Museum which gave more importance to some Lego constructions, that Yes, very well done, that the true art that one expects from a place so

  • Beautiful Cathedral in the Romanesque style, in a beautiful city, quiet, full listed buildings. Don't miss the Plaza Spain, the medieval market, the Hermitage of the Virgen de la Plaza. Passage of the Camino de Santiago.
