    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.

    We did a day trip from Madrid to Segovia and hit the highlights. So glad we got to see this Cathedral. Very impressive. Lots to see. Exceeded our expectations. Easy walk from the aqueduct.

    If you enjoy wandering round churches then this will not disappoint. Lost count of the number of chapels within, each unique and distinct. Saw an arriving wedding party and marvelled at the grandness of the surroundings. Did not do the Tower, but wish we had. Maybe you should

    Very beautiful, massive and with a beautiful view from the tower over the city. Really worth the visit and the entrance is pretty cheap.

    Restoration occurring on organs when we were there. Interesting history. Tapestries and religious artifacts on display. Bathrooms in the basement We did not pay extra for tower tour so unable to tell you if worthwhile. Chaplets have exquisite workmanship

    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 chapels inside
