Unfortunately, we had only about 35 minutes in the museum, which was nowhere near enough. We did the tour of the Cathedral rooftop at 18.00 - highly recommended, even if tour was in Spanish - and our tickets also allowed us entry into the museum,...More

The audio guides help a lot, but they are a little awkward if you are looking for specific information. The tour is extensive and provides a lot of background and historical information.

I had a very poor experience not because of the venue but because of the guide who led the tour at 7pm on Monday 10th July. I think the guide's name was Pili- a very slight dark haired woman. After paying for the ticket the...More

Quite an interesting museum, beautiful building next to the Cathedral, very nice museography but specially the history of the place and the colection. Try to get a guide, it makes it a lot more interesting.

There are lots of interesting exhibits in this museum including the building. The choir stalls are worth a look. The best bit is the opportunity to look down over the main square. Although you aren't too high up there are good views and you can...More
