  • 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!

  • Breathtaking. Do not forget to visit the Cámara Santa where rhe Sudarium is kept. Many treasures there.
  • If you are looking at the cathedral turn around and find the building with the bullet holes in it. The sign says Calle de Rue.
  • Beautiful Cathedral if you are visiting Toledo you won't miss it
  • 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?
