  • As well said, I am ciño to the facade, since I arrived 5 minutes after the visits to the interior of the ship were closed and I had to settle for appreciating it from the outside.

  • The cathedral of Pamplona, whose facade was remodeled from Gothic to neoclassicism by Bishop Arnaldo de Barbazán, finds rich contrast between its religious and historical functions, especially in his visit to the secular life of the time through the refectory, kitchen, cloister and other rooms that make it very interesting to visit. Highlight that, through technology, the visit details great entertainment for those who have the opportunity to know it.

  • Pamplona Cathedral, which was so large, did not surprise me to the extent that it could have been, perhaps because of its location, because the surrounding houses are restricted from all sides, so it is difficult to estimate the size. Now, if there is an area like the one in St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome, the building will be viewed in a completely different way.

  • It’s Europe, there are lots of cathedrals and churches. This is a nice one. If you speak Spanish, the exhibition inside (there is a museum) is probably great. They have certainly designed it well, with state of the art architecture and technology. However it’s only in Spanish, so for us English speaking lot, pretty to look at, totally irrelevant experience however. Probably don’t bother if you have done churches in Europe already but if you visit, it’s nice.
  • Worth the entrance fee. Very interesting interior and a great museum showing the Cathedral excavations and its development over the years. I liked the holographic organist. The cloisters and refectory are being fully restored but you can still visit them.
  • A magnificent cathedral ! With richly decorated altars inside, with the tomb of Carol III and his wife, with relics of St Fermin and an itinerary through the history of the place accompanied by numerous artifacts. It's too interesting not to be visited.
  • Tucked away on the edge of the old town skirting the medieval perimeter town walls lies the rather plain looking Cathedral facade. The outside gives no clues to the treasures that lie within. Once you are through the heavy oak doors you are confronted by a mass of carved skyscraper like alters embelished with gold leaf. It is difficult to take it all in any church would consider any one of these edifices to be its centrepiece but here there are about 15 niches or small chapples showing of their own masterpieces. Don't miss this, religious or not you can't help but be in awe of the craftsmanship and dedication that culminated in these works.
  • Compared to Burgos cathedral this place of worship has few visitors as there isn't a famous tomb in it. The interior is light and airy with a wonderful set of cloisters and a refectory too. This cathedral should be visited when you are in Pamplona.
