I always make a beeline for cathedrals when I go anywhere new. No-one really knows why, as I am not particularly religious the rest of the time. There was a nice little cloister in here and it was a peaceful retreat from the bustling streets...More

One might almost miss the Cathedral (named after Santiago the Apostle, just like the more famous one in Compostela), hidden as it is in a very small square in between the bustling activity of the Casco Viejo. The architecture is gothic and the windows inside...More

For a small entrance fee (kids are free) you get an audio tour of the chapels and icons. An escape from the nearby bustle!
