We visited both the old and new cathedrals, as they are joined together. The English / audio guide was great and gave a clear description of each part of the cathedral.

We visited Salamanca on Palm Sunday and when we went to the Cathedrals they were closed. It was right before a Palm Sunday parade and the streets were very crowded. Fortunately, I had read in RIck Steve's Spain book about visiting the tower. We walked around the church and found the tower open with no crowds. We were able to... More

This cathedral reminded me of the one in Sevilla. Absolutely beautiful! We especially liked the dome with the figure of a dove, which could be seen more clearly thanks to a mirrored case, set up for better viewing.

Paid less than 5€ to get in but it was worth it. It's beatiful, huge and mind blowing. I wish I had more time to see the details

Visited for half a day (really not enough time). I think the word WOW comes to mind. If anyone visits this city and does not leave impressed with old town I would be amazed. We had the fortune of seeing the Easter parade which was well worth it and made the time even more special. This city is well worth... More

Beautiful facade and color that intensify while the sun hits its walls and turns it into a more deep color red as summer time gets closer. It is a must see. On one of its side entrances you will find a sculpted "modern man" (the astronaut) as a wink to modern society or to the future some say. Downside is... More

Totally worthwhile if you're in the area; you get to explore the majority of the old cathedral. The architecture and views are pretty spectacular, particulary over the old town. It's free after 17:00 on Sundays too. The stairs are very steep and narrow however, and you may have to wait in line to reach the top

I visited this cathedral many years ago before I became disabled, and I was looking forward to seeing the inside one more time. My wife went ahead and paid for the entrance fees, and asked about the accessible entrance. We were shown round to the side, where there was a ramp. However to get to the ramp you had to... More

Beautiful place and a reasonable price of admission. These old buildings put modern multimillion pound structures to shame. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Salamanca.
