You have to pay an entrance fee, which includes an audio guide. Those aged 65+ get in for a reduced rate. The cathedral is more like a castle from the outside. Worth visiting if you have time in Almeria.

We went this week to visit the cathedral and it was lovely! I very pretty place which has had a lot of time and care dedicated to maintaining it. I would highly recommend going, the €5 is worth it and includes an audio tour.

Very interesting history and good narrative to accompany you on the way round. The construction is also interesting both in style and purpose.

It's well worth half hour of the time to drop in here, the entrance is NOT in the Plaza you have to walk around the side street to the new main entrance, so don't just walk away thinking it's closed as we nearly did.

So, we went to 9 am weekday mass! It's a big cube! Beautiful renaissance paintings over main alter, with lots of gold trim. Marble, granite everywhere. Very weathered on the exterior.
