The cathedral hosts a museum and it is located in a very central position of the city surrounded by green spaces. Massive and astonishing piece of art, definitely worth to see!

Huge and nicely renovated. Worth a visit if you are in Vitoria. We just visited on our own. Nice architecture & decorations.

Not long ago the old cathedral of Vitoria was nearly falling due to long standing problems in the foundations of the temple. After that, it has been renovated and it flaunts itself beautifully. A visit to the tower is worth to enjoy the views

A nice cathedral, quite subtle for a Spanish cathedral by all accounts. With a look if you are in the area

The cathedral is quite pretty but not exceptional. The architecture is interesting.However the exhibition of religious artifacts is definitely worth visiting. Be aware that the entrance is via the rear of the building and not the main door.Worth visiting if you are in the area.

The cathedral in Vitoria is been restored, but THE tour of the interior is overshadowed by the guided tour of THE restoration of the underground. The visit by ítself is worth the trip. You can actually Imagine the history of the City through the several...More
