  • We had the bad luck of finding it in works, aunq not already seems a cathedral, as q arriving by the part back seems a normal building, in fact, had to confirm that it was the Cathedral. The only thing good is q is 50 meters from the Torico square and arrives in a pispas.

  • It is the Cathedral of Teruel a magnificent piece of Teruel Mudejar art, whose interior is well worth visiting. Cover pair and knuckle has a few magnificent painted stuccos, which you can see by visiting the corridor under its supports.

  • The Cathedral is spectacular, perhaps not as impressive as others, but hides a coffered ceiling which is unique in its kind. It is necessary to climb to see it up close and to realize the jewel that is. I recommend strongly to visit up to see about his secrets, and as the Moriscos left their mark there.
