  • Imposing Cathedral in Sigüenza. Inside it houses the statue of Alabaster of El Doncel, one of the best of the Gothic period, whose curious history is worth. Traces of the Civil war are also very striking in the pockets of the tower. Recommended

  • The interior is interesting. Beautiful cloister. Has a collection of tapestries and paintings by El Greco. The altar is impressive. You can't go without having visited the chapel where is el Doncel de Sigüenza. Famous for being the first representation in a tomb of a Knight reading, instead of with warriors elements of the sculptures of the time.

  • The imposing Cathedral of Sigüenza, with its solid towers which keep traces of the Spanish civil war, deserves the name of "Fortis Siguenza". But it is not only impressive on the outside, its interior keeps many interesting corners and artistic treasures
