It costs €5 per person to go round this Cathedral. You get a hand held speaker in English (or probably any other language) and this gives you every detail of the Cathedral. It is worth every euro to see this magnificent building. I noticed it...More

Having seen so many cathedrals in Spain, almost gave this one a miss. That would have been a mistake. This off-the-beaten-track cathedral has a museum which has tremendous tapestries about Hannibal and the Trojan Wars. The 12th century cathedral is a delight. Great craftsmanship and...More

We visited the cathedral on a sunday, just before one o'clock, apparently mass time. Went on nevertheless, and found a beautiful cathedral. In the museum lots of clerical objects. On the first floor several fantastic flemish tapestries.

Much smaller than its counterpart in Salamanca it is very beautiful. Fortunate to have visited just prior to a wedding and organ prep was rich to my ears The fish-scaled exterior dome most unique.

A real sense of awe and reverence descends on you on entering this beautiful building: a Cathedral that manages to retain it's spirituality whilst simultaneously being a tourist attraction. Not all do unfortunately, so that in itself is special. One enters the building initially through...More

The cathedral has outstanding renaissance frescoes and paintings, and the 16-17th century tapestries are absolutely gorgeous, in perfect condition in vivid colours, and beautiful detail. I went to the cathedral twice (I was allowed to go twice with the same ticket) as we arrived at...More

Really enjoyed our walk around the cathedral. Beautiful building and the English handset / guide gave good descriptions of each part of the church. We particularly enjoyed the tapestries in the museum. Lucky that there are hardly any tourists in Zamora at this time of...More

Maybe it is not as spectacular as other of the Castilla and Leon cathedrals, but it deserves a visit in its own right, with an interesting museum and tapestry collection. Consider that it closes at lunch time to organise your time. Additionally, if you want...More
