Take a close look at the choir stall carvings, depicting saints and vivid scenes of country life. Numerous tombs are tucked inside the cathedral, some with delicate filigree carvings. Apart from the main chapel, nave, and apses, there is a display case housing sacred artifacts, and halls adorned with over twenty tapestries.

  • Visit it with detail, admire its treasures and its dome is worth. I recommend visiting the chapel of San Bernardo and admire the imposing image of the Cristo de las Injurias. Highlight the Virgin of la Calva and tables of Fernando Gallego. And not miss the Cathedral Museum and the impressive and unique Flemish tapestries. I recommend to visit the chapel of Santiago, which has just been opened to the public.
