  • Perfect and impressive cathedral, the rosette is admirable. Is a village with charm from the beginning until the end.

  • The first thing that draws the attention of this Cathedral is its size, is very great and very high. Romanesque and above that a ship of Gothic style, joined boasts stained glass windows. To highlight the Pantheon of the Doncel with its famous figure in Alabaster. It has guided tours.

  • In the month of February 2017, my partner and I have been in Sigüenza, visiting the Cathedral. I recommend to visit it, but mostly I recommend guided tour. The Guide, an Argentine expert of our art and our history, explains in sensational shape and detail the most interesting corners of the same. The €5 to us cost the visit is largely justified.
