A beautiful, large and decorative building with gothic and baroque elements. It has the scale and soaring height of the type of cathedral one might associate with northern Europe. To non-catholics, the seemingly endless rows of side chapels, saints, religious paintings and the repeated symbolism...More

Worth the visit....climb the tower to see the views of the city but of the roofs of both old and new cathedrals. Audio guides are provided...lots of information given. Old cathedral is simple yet has so much history...paintings and sculptures are breathtaking!

Unfortunately, it was impossible to see the cathedral from a distance in the dense fog. During the restoration in 1992, an astronaut was added to the facade as a signature of the modern sculptors. Inside not as impressive as I expected, till I walked through...More

Liverpool may have two cathedrals, but the two in Salamanca are something else. To start with, the new cathedral is one of the oldest cathedrals in Europe. They weren’t built as competitors, just that the new cathedral was to replace the old one, but when...More

not the most beautiful church in the world but worth a visit if you are in Salamanca already. the visit of the old and the new cathedral is combined and includes the gizmo that gives you the commentary for the tour of the churches

A huge building that dominates the skyline of the old city of Salamanca. Absolutely awesome to look at and marvel at as you walk towards the town. Although not “New”! All my reviews are based on genuine first hand experience, if this has been helpful...More

Yes this is a harsh review but this cathedral is not as inspiring as Leon (with its incredible stained glass) or Burgos ( with its impeccable condition and beautiful chapels). It is a beautiful cathedral from the outside but we found the inside lacking something....More

New Cathedral and Old Cathedral are connected. Be sure to rent the audio device for tour and plan on spending more than an hour touring both cathedrals. Not your usual cathedral. Make sure you find the stairs in the back of the old cathedral and...More
