    Mini Treasure Rooms!
    We came here on July 15th, 2022 (so almost a year ago) a little after 12pm. We were there for less than 30 minutes but it was really pretty! As with many cathedrals, they start to look the same after a while. What set this one apart, in my opinion, is that it had these awesome mini treasure rooms. I spent most of my time wandering through these rooms (our kids were at preschool so it was a rare moment that we could wander without interrupt at our own pace). So while I don't remember specifically what I saw in those rooms, I remember walking around them so this cathedral, of the good 20+ we saw in Spain, sticks out in my brain!

    Not as awesome as Sevilla
    Large cathedral and the main cathedral in Jerez, so a must do whilst visiting for any length of time. We booked to see the inside of the church itself but also to climb the adjacent (not joined on!) bell tower to get a view over the town. Inside of the church quite typical of so many in Spain (and on the continent generally) - lots of icons, 'bling' and heavily catholic, so if you aren't into this, maybe don't bother? Climb to top of the tower needs to be timed to avoid the times the bells ring (!) so you don't get too long up there. Also, you don't get to go to the very top of the tower, just to the bells level, so maybe not as great a panoramic view as if higher up. Bell tower in Sevilla much more impressive! Still, whilst here we felt we should at least do this.

    Amazing church and architecture
    If you like visiting gothic and baroque churches this place is for you. Its fascinating. I felt a bit unhappy about paying €8 for a ticket and audio guide as it’s only €5 for Alcazar. But I got over it!!! They also include 3D viewing goggles which bring the church to another dimension. You feel like you are flying. Weird but amazing.

    Brutal
    A rather brutal, in places ugly and gloomy building.. From the outside it nothing special, a rather unexciting form of Gothic. Pleasant vaulting inside and impressive pullers. A very bling alter. The unattached clock tower is much more pleasant.

    Fabulous place of reverence
    An inspirational and reverential holy place it is quite extraordinary. Exterior wise it has exquisite stone decorative carvings. Interior most definitely doesn’t disappoint. A sense of awe at its creation prevails.

Worth to visit - we absolve it only from outside, but it is a real nice photo spot.
It is next to Tio Pipo, also to Alcázar - also good for nice photos.

A squat ugly building that is unusual for Andalusian cathedrals. It does not compare to most of the others I’ve seen. The outside walls look like a prison, up to roof level when it improves. Inside it’s blocks of stone without grace or charm. If you can only see some cathedrals of Andalusia go to cordoba or Cadiz and give this one a miss.

Well worth a visit! A lovely, peaceful garden at the back. A beautiful display of antique Nativity figures and many interesting artefacts to see.

They give you a code to scan to your mobile and use it as audio guide and works perfectly well, just remember to shut down the alerts because if not you will be disturbed every time someone sends you a message

This was very disappointing - the interior was not special for a cathedral and seemed like it had just been made a tourist destination. The St Miguel church a few minutes away is much more beautiful outside and especially inside - it felt real (and was half the price)
