A lovely cathedral located high in Viseu and with a large open piazza. Beautiful artwork on the walls and depending on the time of day, there's some great lighting within the cathedral corridors. Worth visiting.

This remarkable building justly deserves a visit. It´s rather austere and massive, having a baroque interior with golden altars, ornated vaults, etcetera. In the adjacent cloister, there are also beautiful elements and tiles. One good thing about this cathedral is to be surrounded by others...More

I have to admit we didn't go inside, but this is one of the more impressive buildings I have ever seen. Constructed right up on top of colossal boulders and full of turrets and ramparts, odd corners and more, the cathedral looks like I have...More

This building is worth your visit when in Viseu. Going to Viseu is not realy a must though. We were a little disappointed in the visit.

The picture of the West End shows what this Cathedral is about. The 17 century facade is flanked by 2 older towers. Inside the vaulted ceiling are Manueline, and the altars are heavily gilded Baroque. The two styles go together quite well, and the whole...More
