    What to Expect
    Visit: Cathedral of Segovia, Plaza Mayor s/n, 40001 Segovia Spain

    Discover the last Gothic cathedral with this admission ticket. Entrance is through the north transept. The interior, illuminated by 16th-century Flemish windows, is light, bare and uncluttered, with a large Gothic choir (15th-century, predating the cathedral) placed in the center. Across from the choir in the east end is the high altar, with an 18th-century altarpiece by Sabatini.

    The walls and apse are lined with more than 20 chapels. The third chapel on your right from the entrance (Capilla de San Cosme y San Damian) has a lamentation group in wood by the 17th-century Baroque sculptor Gregorio Fernández.

    The Blessed Sacrament Chapel (created by the flamboyant Churriguera) features stained-glass windows, elaborately carved choir stalls, and 16th- and 17th-century paintings, including a reredos portraying the deposition of Christ from the cross by Juan de Juni.

    Across from the entrance, on the southern transept, is a door opening into the late-Gothic cloister, which is older than the cathedral — it and the elaborate door leading into it were transported from the old cathedral and are the work of architect Juan Guas.

    Under the pavement immediately inside the cloisters are the tombs of Juan and Rodrigo Gil de Hontañón; that these two lie in a space designed by Guas is appropriate, for the three men together dominated the last phase of the Gothic style in Spain.

    Off the cloister, a small museum of religious art, installed partly in the first-floor chapter house, has a white-and-gold 17th-century ceiling, a late example of Mudéjar artesonado work. The museum contains jewelry, paintings, and a collection of rare antique manuscripts.

    This cathedral isn't as striking or historically important as several other cathedrals in the country, but a fascinating feature is that there are elements of both Gothic and Renaissance styles as a result of the timeframe that it was built. A couple of the side...More

    The outside gothic architecture is beyond beautiful. It was only 3 euros to tour the inside which is super cheap. The inside is adorned from top to bottom with gold, paintings, statues, ornaments and more. There's a life size suffering Jesus encased in glass. Well...More

    You rarely see this in any country so it felt off putting to me. It’s a beautiful cathedral and worth the few euros.. but seems silly to charge so little if you are going to charge? What about locals who just want to attend mass?...More

    This is a very uniquely designed cathedral. While it may not be as large or ornate as its "big sister" from Toledo, the Cathedral of Segovia is a beautiful creation. The exterior architecture is quite unique and the stone is very colorful. The interior has...More
