(3.9/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Experience the architecture and decor of a 12th-century cathedral at Cathedral of Teruel. See one of the oldest and best-preserved Mudejar bell towers in Spain, built in three sections, decorated in ceramic tile, and topped with an octagonal lantern from the 17th century. One of the most notable features of the cathedral is the ceiling, called the Sistine Chapel of Mudejar art. Built in the 13th century, the wooden ceiling is ornately decorated with hunting scenes, religious themes, vegetation, geometric designs, and Moorish inscriptions. In 1986, UNESCO declared the tower, wooden ceiling, and dome of the cathedral the joint Mudejar monuments of the city.

  • Guide that we had "invited me" to take off my hat that I've always been and that any have gotten me another site the more minimal beats by take it claiming that the ofendia(a ella) being in a sacred place, that after having paid the entrance and be respectfully listening to his talk about 20 minutes. I think it was the lack of respect towards my by who decided to leave me for not mounting a scandal. I commented that if would have been with another partner what would have been overlooked, but she does not. If that is the tolerance of the Catholic Church... that Dios caught us confessed. Let me clarify that I have traveled to many places in my long life, and it is the first time that this happens to me. Disservice to the tourism.

  • Cathedral in arte mudejar, with brick and tiles in green and white, exterior, inside is one retable all pine wood of the region by its characteristic color. There are several chapels around the altarpiece. You can climb to the tower with views of the city and the stained glass windows.
