Catedral de Pamplona Reviews
I normally walk for half an hour surrounding the walls of Pamplona, full of history and good vibrations, then I finish up at the Cathedral where I go for meditation in front of Carlos III mausoleum... more »
Pamplona is very typical of many Spanish towns. Some lovely architecture, many shops, bars and restaurants and is a very lively place at the weekend. more »
It’s Europe, there are lots of cathedrals and churches. This is a nice one. If you speak Spanish, the exhibition inside (there is a museum) is probably great. They have certainly designed it well, with state of the art architecture and technology. However it’s only in Spanish, so for us English speaking lot, pretty to look at, totally irrelevant experience however. Probably don’t bother if you have done churches in Europe already but if you visit, it’s nice.
Worth the entrance fee. Very interesting interior and a great museum showing the Cathedral excavations and its development over the years. I liked the holographic organist. The cloisters and refectory are being fully restored but you can still visit them.
