The Cathedral of the Good Sheperd in the centre of San Sebastian is worth a visit, you cannot miss it if you are roaming around in the shopping district. It is not as rich and exuberant as the Santa Maria del Coro in the old...More

This is a nice church. It has the Gothic style but is not as old as it looks. Still a very pretty church for the city center. The inside is certainly worth a look see. I always check out the churches for some reason. Don't...More

Like many of the old buildings in this wonderful city, this is a stunning cathedral. Truly, you can walk the streets here for hours and be totally enchanted. This is the most wonderful place we have visited.

The honey coloured stone of the Cathedral is a draw and its soaring external architecture is a real draw. However, when you enter the interior somewhat seems diminished with granite columns, thick fluted columns and wide spaces it has an austere quality.

To be honest we were a little disappointed with the cathedral inside, although the outside is magnificent. The stained glass windows are beautiful.

A bit boring if one is allowed to say so when talking about a church. Its architecture is neo-gothic and therefore it seems to lack the historic patina that you can find in some of the other churches in town such as S.Maria del Coro

This 120 year old, neo-gothic, church is an imposing building and makes a strong impression because of its size and soaring spire. The austere interior of the church, while simple in style is still quite beautiful and serene. Even with no entry fee this church...More
