Catedral de Tortosa is the most important religious building located in the city, which is in the South of Catalonia. You can enter to the building in a secondary street of the old town and here you can see the lower part (where population was taking refuge in the Spanish Civil War, when fascists bombed the city), a little and very beautiful museum, the very nice cloister and the main hall. Probably, the best turistic point in the city.

I was there on September 3rd. The front of the cathedral is under renovation, access through the side door.

I got there earlier, during the fiesta, the door was open, I got in and didn’t have any time to ask about the admission because this lady charge at me screaming something in Spanish, I only understood “serado” I think its written Cerrado (closed). She pointed something on the door, a small signed I didn’t see and slammed the door behind me.

I went to other points of interest, good thing, because at the Renacimiento y Reales Colegios de Tortosa I got to talk to a decent young guy that spoke very good English and he offered me the Tortosa Card, see attached, a day pass that you can use in 5 attractions, the Cathedral included at a very good price. Ask for it at the tourists info points or any attractions, they might also have it.

I went back to the Cathedral after, open now, the rude lay was there, she was watching me and another couple of people like a hawk, I felt so uncomfortable. She was acting like we came to rob the place.

However, the cathedral is very nice but dark. It cost you 1 Euro to turn the light on, she didn’t tell me, I discovered that myself, there is a small red box, you slip one euro and the lights o the altar comes on. See pictures.

The route into the Cathedral is somewhat tortuous, but with fascinating exhibits along the way.
Once you arrive in the Cathedral itself it seems somewhat austere for a catholic church, but then you see the side chapels which are the largest I've ever seen.

Main attraction in Tortosa, the place is very nicely preserved and refurbished. You can easily spend 3 hours if you have enough time. History lesson on Spain...and not only!

For the first time managed to see inside (on July 26th) thanks to the staff recommendation of the Parador de Tortosa.They charged 9 € for 2 pax (entrada general). Fair price has they have maintenance and security costs to cover. A pity there were no portable devices avaiable to explain history behind it. We had to use internet to get general info. Very impressive cathedral and worth to pay a visit indeed.

The cathedral was a pleasant surprise - really cool artefacts dating back to the 14th century and very well kept interior. Little information in English, but definitely worth the visit.

Tortosa cathedral is unfinished and perhaps because of this it is amazing . I live across the cathedral so i visit it often. Gothic stile gives a sense of serenity everywhere but the st unique element inthe cathedra is the chapel devoted to VIRGEN DE LA CINTA ( the virgin with a ribbon) look out the meaning of the ribbon a you will enjoy the visit even more. As I am not only a local but i also live in the neighbourhood I can assure it is worth visiting without being in a hurry and listen to the lirics of the "HIMNE DE LA CINTA"

After that we had found the city Tortosa we parked the car near the train station (for free). We walked around the town with a Nice atmosphere And found a walking route marked by sun-Stones on the pathway. By following that route we came across all the landmarks of the city And found the cathedral aswell. At that time it was fiesta so No enterence possible (fiesta from 13:30 to 16:30) But we had something to eat And drink And came back to the Cathedral (exposition included). The entree was 7€ pp. But at the desk we Only had to pay 9€ togehether ( Nice!). The Guy behind the desk explained in english What we could expact And How we should walk around And gave us the english version of the voucher. Walking trough the basement of the building was mind blowing. There is a gigantic maze under the cathedral. Going up to the exposition rooms Where a Nice collection of art And collectables is on display with very beautifull pieces.
Now we are already 40 minutes inside And we enter the actual cathedral that is gigantic! The amouth of details inside is mindblowing!! Should see for yourself

It's absolutely nice place to spend your time if you stay near by Salou.
I would not recommend this place in high season, as it's too hot to walk and rest on the high Hill, but later September is good.
We spent there about one hour, but need at least 4 hours to touch the history and enjoy the viewing of the city and nearest mountain.
