  • The ticket includes both the museum with religious artifacts and it was one of the more interesting ones with some really nice items in between. The cathedral itself is very beautiful and simple and contains nice altarboards. The Audi Guide provides a good understanding of the individual Altalsand the main objects in the museum.

  • I already knew her, but she didn't remember the excellent natural lighting of the interior. Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles, it was erected on an old Romanesque church and this one on another pre-Romanesque church. Beautiful baroque facade that is an authentic altarpiece in stone with scenes of the Gospels. From the interior I loved the altarpiece of the main altar and that of San Miguel, a magnificent Spanish-Flemish altarpiece of the XVI century

  • €5 to enter but we only had half an hour before it closed so not enough time. Impressive from the outside. The carvings around the main door are stunning. The attention to detail on the clothing and the women's dresses took someone a long time to do. There is no prayer chapel here. There is a church across the road that has evening prayers.
  • An amazing place. Such an incredibly beautiful day. Missed the Gaudi museum just by, but will go back some day.
