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.

    I went with my partner and we bought the tour along with the entrance of the Museum for €3. The Cathedral is very pretty and has lots of interesting history, but the Guide seemed that I was reading a book while I was sleeping / bored. Halfhearted to do its work. Children had and not annoying to make it more entertaining, so children people were bored Presidency and spoke more preventing his monotonous voice be heard. Not made by lift it so that the Fund's good since the Group was large. It did not take pictures when you can enter at any time and make the photos that you come out of the turnip. A very interesting and beautiful, but very poorly guided Cathedral.
