  • Without a doubt the best Temple of Extremadura, coexist in the old cathedral in the Romanesque style in transition to Gothic, and the new cathedral which do not get to finish, and that has left us two facades plateresque, a Baroque altarpiece and the magnificent tomb of Bishop Ponce de León.

  • I went to Plasencia by it, and I did not disappoint. Stunning beautiful, worth a stop along the way to see it.

  • It was only possible to visit the Cathedral, because there was mass. On Monday, many monuments of this type have their doors closed. It's too bad, in the middle of August. It has not been possible to visit the ancient Cathedral.

  • Unfriendly and unwelcoming!
  • Essential to your visit. This church, which is the most beautiful of Extremadura is located near the plaza. They are two cathedrals, an old and a new. The new has two facades plateresque style, as well as the entrance to the sacristy. The main facade on the Cathedral Square, is a space where time seems is stopped. The only silence is interrupted by the falling water of the fountain jets which presides over it. In the same square stands out balcony at corner of the House of the Dean, and later is school of fine arts Rodrigo Alemán, as well as the House of the Bishop.

  • Truly a gem. It is not common to find two "middle" cathedrals joined together. The interior is spectacular. And outside the main facade of the new Cathedral, the buttresses and the stone floors, precious.

  • The tour is very nice. The entrance costs 4e and give you an audio guide, is very good. You can access the top area and views. Recommended.

  • Special Cathedral with cloister and Treasury. Very old church built into new. Lots of gold trim and silver cups and crosses. Special Windows of transparent type of stone. Must have been a very prosperous time. Also apparent to different palacio in the Centre. Unfortunately now occasional vacant stores.
