  • My advice is to go in! really one of the most beautiful cathedrals i have ever been to. they offer also guided audio.

  • This is a breathtaking church well-worth the visit. My experience is that they let priests in free. If you can program a couple hours for the audio tour it is worth it. It is beautiful and it has a lot of history. Perhaps what is most worth visiting in Salamanca.

  • A beautiful masterpiece of medieval art. The old and new cathedrals are joint together so one ticket allows to visit both. The play of light coming in through the stained windows provides great ambience to admire magnificent chapels and sacral art.

  • Well worth the money. Great view and amazing architecture.

  • New and Old Cathedral in one amazing temple. Difficult to distinguish one from the other, but it is not an issue, since the whole picture is an enormous, wonderful, gothic masterpiece. Worth searching the Astronaut and the Satirus holding an icecream, on the sculptures of one of the doors
