The arches, cloister, and marble floor are Romanesque, including some of the tombs and sepulchers (burial chambers). The nave with arrow arches and much of the intricate stained glass is Meridional Gothic. The 67 choir stalls are Rennaisance style and feature characters and scenes from the Old and the New Testaments. Also, be sure to see the bizarre stuffed crocodile.

  • A surprising little down that has a beautiful cathedral. 5โ‚ฌ entrance with audio guide to certain areas of the cathedral like the garden, where they hold mass and a small museum or you can enter free to see the other part of the cathedral. It is breathtaking the organ which is functional. It would be amazing to hear it in action. Apparently once a year in summer during a festival you are able to hear it.
  • Lovely Roman exterior cathedral with a very unique and one-of-a-kind gothic interior. Entry is 5 euros per adult with discounts for minors and pensioners. Ticket includes audioguide that can be lengthy at times but gives a great description of the different artworks, sections, and most importantly, the magnificent organ. Definitely worth a visit. Can be very busy in the summer.
