  • a great cathedral for a relatively small town you don't think that a middle town may be a worthy of a provincial capital Cathedral.

  • Magnificent cathedral and very well maintained. Large and with an impressive height. You shouldn't pay any entry and deserves to be visited without any hurry.

  • It is the few cathedrals that have Romanesque and Gothic style with fantastic rosettes and Ashlar masonry. Steeped in history, as well as Sigüenza, of battles, sieges and important personalities in the history of Spain.
