  • Huge Temple, probably unnecessary, which remains almost forgotten and postponed to second place by the Cathedral Vieja de Santa María, much more felt by the inhabitants of the city. At the opening of the works at the beginning of the 20th century was attended by King Alfonso XIII. The works were stopped by the war and the enormous cost surpassed more than budgeted. The original project was inspired by the Cathedral of Burgos, also taking as a model in Milan. Franco opened it still unfinished in the 1960s, and was completed in the early 1970s. The result, although more modest than his original claim, is very remarkable sculptural wealth, slenderness and proportionality. Stands out due to its immense size, being the second temple in Spain after the Cathedral of Seville, surpassing even at Madrid's Almudena Cathedral.

  • Wonderful on the outside, to be observed carefully and in detail, particularly the size of the apse (I recommend bringing binoculars to appreciate well the gargoyles), made by sculptors from ringside at the beginning of the 20th century. The crypt is also worth seeing. Once inside, you can see the elevation of the original plans made by the drafters of the project, which are to amaze anyone who appreciates the drawing, linear or artistic. And the Museum of sacred art, which is a real gem, with real masterpieces from different periods, including a picture early Goya nothing less, Ribera dos Santos, and five reliquaries Renaissance talledos in wood in the form of busts of women, with their headdresses and robes that are a few módena, some unique treasures. UM true luxury in Vitoria. A must-see.

  • Being an underground car park directly to the cathedrals, I started with my visit to Vitoria. Beautiful church (Cathedral?), fortunately she was open, and inside is still a small museum, which I have not visited but. You can do nothing wrong nothing spectacular because there is free but admission. Parliament totally unspectacular or interesting is located right next to it...
