Cathedral of Teruel, Teruel

(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.

  • Spain is a country of beautiful cathedrals, it is not essential to travel to Teruel to view its Cathedral. small, narrow and with little that highlight, if anything, apart from the beautiful intensely decorated roof, also highlights the main altarpiece. The tower is in restoration work.

  • You can not miss it, its mudejar ceiling is the best I've seen. A visit includes the Museum of art sacro that is in front

  • Beautiful building which highlights the mudejar Tower, bars the choir and the entrance and two altarpieces, altar and another located on one side which already justify the visit. But if there is something exceptional, it is the roof of the nave. Not could see it closely since believe that had that have a minimum of ten people for the visit guided (and not is softened with our pleas), but at least had the kindness of explain us the from down (very well indeed) splendid!!!! It will have to come back another day with friends to secure the visit. I would ask that they review the legal notice as it is frustrating to sit with the wins, due to lack of quorum.
