This little church is right behind the Cathedral and is worth seeing. It has a very ornate altar. Be sure to drop in for a visit.

Do not pass this church by-easily done as it is next to the cathedral. The interior is splendid but the main alter piece is unbelievably beautiful, perhaps this is what heaven is like. An absolute must to see.

The hours are limited on this small cathedral, but if you can be there, it's really quite lovely and quiet and cool. The large facade invites you to take in each aspect of it.

Next to the great cathedral, most of the people just passing by, but it is worth visiting this church. Just go in, sit down and relax, enjoy the atmosphere and the beauty of it.

the city does not stop to give you the most fantastic churches. It is all overwhelming and you cannot stop taking photographs.

We visited in July 2014. Walking back from the Bugos Castle. There are two Chuches San Esteban and San Nicolas de Bari. The Musem of Retables and altarpieces mostly dating from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Well worth the visit

You are already wondering around the Cathedral, so do stop in for two very good reasons. The main altar, which is one of the most incredible use of carvings that you will see. Also the collection of Flemish tapestries in the museum.

A flight of steps away from the cathedral is this little gem with its wonderful altarpiece. Well worth a visit if nearby. I had been I several nearby churches and of course the cathedral; so a quick visit was all I had in mind. This was helped by the fact that when I arrived I was informed that they would... More

The altar piece is astounding. Very friendly staff, even opened the museum for us. The custodian also presented our kids with a piece of candy:-) Plus: you get to walk the Jacob's Pilgrimage, at least for a couple of meters.
