This cathedral may not seem much from the outside but the beauty lies within. The outdoor areas of the church are just as impressive as the indoor parts. Check out the amazing views from the outdoor terrace and head down to the basement afterwards to...More

Impressive cathedral, one of the best I’ve visited. Two options for entry: the more expensive ticket gives access to the first floor and the Museo del Tesoro. Well well well worth the extra pennies!More

It continues to amaze me architecture of buildings like this Cathedral. The engineering and construction required. And on top of this is that it is in a cliff town. Worth a visit. Make sure to see the Sacristy and the Chapter House.

It's a lovely cathedral - not spectacular but must be visited in Cuenca. One thing which was very different was the stained glass work in the windows - beautifully designed and made and very unusual. Cuenca is very touristy and so it should be -...More
