  • Historical cathedral that only costs 3 euros to get in, well worth every penny. Inside you will not only see the cathedral but also the rooms and items who belonged to the priests. If you're feeling adventurous, go see The roof top views. Gem amongst things to see in triana.
  • Amazing place. We only visited the tower to have a look at the surrounding city. The way up costs EUR2 which is not much for the view you get from the top. Have a cup of coffee in the near small café and enjoy the beauty of this catedral.
  • Wow well worth the €3 entrance fee to see the museum and cathedral!
  • A gigantic Cathedral of incredible architecture, with a very beautiful front plaza.
