  • Very well preserved, it follows the line of the Gothic cathedrals of the North and centre of Spain, easy to find surrounded by pedestrian streets which makes it easier to display

  • Very few people, was like. The chapel of the relics to be nearly empty. The beautiful cloister. The very interesting Museum.

  • From the entrance to the exit has been a pleasant surprise visit to the Cathedral of Oviedo. The audio tour is very enjoyable, clear signage, has interactive screens with interesting treasures, highly recommended visit!

  • Absolutely amazed by the interior. It took my breathe away!! Entrance can be tricky if you do not already know someone who has admission to this church - how it works exactly, I'm not sure. I was told that there's a paid guided tour around, so maybe check it out on forums and book inadvance?
  • A very Spanish cathedral, in a fantastic square.
  • Nothing to report, as tourist visitors are not allowed into the Cathedral, which only opens it's doors for services, and they are then locked. Very disappointed. I have never been denied access to a place of worship before. David Vaughan. Poole. U. K.
  • The opening hours a bit confusing
  • I didn't like that much in all honesty. So can't comment more than this.
