What I can see seems of enormous proportions.
Fue una maravillosa experiencia. La catedral es muy linda y es imprescindible visitarla si se esta en Oviedo.

The cathedral is very nice and it is essential to visit it if you are in Oviedo. The day I visited I was lucky enough to see the original Holy Shroud up close (after a display case) as it was September 14. Only twice a year, we were told, this happens, on September 14th and 21st. It is advisable to listen to the audio guide as it accompanies a lot.
Very interesting visit, impressive building. Audio guide in multiple languages. Some very important artifacts such as the Sudarium and the Asturian Cross of Victory. The interactive screens in multiple languages are excellent.
Just see the beauty of the architecture. At different times if the day as the sunlight falls on the tower, it's beauty keeps on adding flavors. Equally beautiful it is from inside but you have to pay 7€ to go inside.
