Catedral de Segovia, Segovia

4.3
#2 of 103 in Museums in Castile and Leon
Specialty Museum Museum
Wherever you wander around town, the towering 16th-century Gothic style Catedral de Segovia looms above you. You should have no problems finding plenty of angles from which to photograph it. As you wander the building's perimeter, check out the sculpture of the Virgin Mary on the main facade. Once inside, take your time to appreciate the high vaults, dome, stained glass windows, and many paintings and sculptures. Head into the archive to see “The Synod of Aguilafuente,” the first book printed in Spain. The massive tower is only accessible with special permission from the cathedral's administrators, so don’t expect views.

  • Very beautiful architecture. Slightly different from other churches. In front of plaza mayor.
  • Well preserved & maintained.Great Spanish historical place, a must visit.
  • Impressive cathedral. A must see in this wonderful city
  • One of the most beautiful cathedrals you can find in Castilla y Leon. There is a mix of different artistic styles that confer its particular beauty. A must see in Segovia!
  • It was abit expensive to get in the cathedral. I think the price doesn't worth it to compare with the other cathedral around Spain. However I like the small little market in front of it.
