Visit starts with the old church on top of which the cathedral was built. Part of the roman ruins can also be seen. The old church is small, solemn and with little art to ornate it. Main artifacts are the reliquaries enclosing the heads of...More

A beautiful Cathedral in this wonderful Spanish city of Santander. Could not go inside as it was closed. However it is really impressive.
