It is super recommended to pay to climb the bell tower, you have an impressive view of the entire historic center.

The input is not too expensive and is accompanied by a pretty good audio guide (both in the tone and in the duration of the audio files: nothing cansinos) that explains the main features and curiosities: history, construction, central nave and sides, chapels, niches, burials, etc. with this entrance is included the visit to the bell tower (where you can enjoy excellent views of the city and region) and the famous museum (not very large but well organized). It is Gothic style (the interior cross vaults are a good example). Apart from what has already been mentioned, the altarpiece of the main altar in cedar wood (what work would be glued to when doing it!), executed with a finesse and precision that amazes. It has a fairly extensive visiting schedule. So don't hesitate for a moment and come in.
A beautiful cathedral church. Reasonable €4 to enter but you do get audio guide and access to the bell tower for that, where you can ring a bell!
Just your standard European cathedral. Nothing special and similar ones all over Spain.
