Catedral de Segovia, Segovia

4.3
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.

  • A beautiful Cathedral, worth watching. It can be visited on the way to the Alcazar, in heart of the city and has a rich history.

  • Interesting inside, beautiful on the outside and Gothic Cathedral. You pay to enter. There is a guided visit to the Bell Tower, home of the ringer, etc... It lasts approximately one hour and is very interesting. It costs €7 with the entrance of the Cathedral.

  • One of the beautiful Gothic churches in Spain. The exterior Gothic design is a sight to behold in person. The interior however, is like a time machine that transports you to medieval era where church icons were venerated and prayed to by the parishioners to intercede on their behalf. Makes me wonder if requesting a favor via channel is practiced in heaven. The workmanship on the wood works were very good. The authentic tapestry displays were unbelievable. I also admire the antique wheeled carts used to carry the saint statues during festival processions. Old apparatus used to build the church that were on display makes me realized the hard work needed to build such a magnificent church. This is a must see for all who visit Segovia. Bravo!
  • Beautiful architecture, both from outside as well as inside. The Cathedral of segovia is situated at the center of old town, at plaza mayor. One should see it in both during day as well as in night. The lighting in night makes it even more beautiful. There are 27 small sections inside; and all have its own important. People often miss to see this from open area inside. Backside view of cathedral is as splendid as front view
  • Huge cathedral. Lot of things to see inside. Each and every chapel is unique. The entry ticket has a map of cathedral which gives all the information. The architecture is stunning. One can keep admiring its beauty.
  • The cathedral of Segovia has great architecture inside and outside of it. Is located next to different places to eat and buy souvenirs. If going to see the aqueduct you must stop in the cathedral.
  • Meh. I didn't like how you had to pay to get into a very boring cathedral, in my opinion of course. The size was breathtaking, but many parts are not available to enter and many sections are barred off. I have found small local churches with better detailing than this one.
