  • Umfortunately the church is undergoing restoration and, most of the time, is closed to the public. I was not lucky. Shame.  more »
  • I have been able to check the evolution of restoration, since it had been a few years ago. Highly recommended for everyone

  • Gorgeous and oddly touching. I don’t know if the tone is the same for every audio-guide, the one in French certainly was. A must-see for art history lovers and normal people too x)
  • Nice cathedral placed in a very beautiful square. Very recommendable to do a walk around the cathedral and the nearbies. We love Vitoria.
