Despite you are an atheist don't miss a mass at Sunday morning in the chapel located in the basement. Divine. And after it have some tapas around the bus station.

We didn't get to visit the cathedral because there was a service, but the little cloister was worth the detour.

Beautiful church and cloister courtyard, and we were lucky enough to catch the Palm Sunday procession and sermon. An hour in the sunshine at the Cathedral bar outside was also very welcome.
Very clean, no beggers, I was all cathedraled out by this time but my wife loved it. We were able to sit in the square outside a people watch, a lovely fountain and water feature.
I visited this Cathedral on a language trip. On the outside it isn't beautiful, but the inside makes up for that. There are beautiful painted glass windows with a garden in the cnetre.
A great place to spend an hour away from the city. Cathedral, crypt and cloisters all worth visiting. Seating in cloisters is a pretty area to sit and relax.
Although not unattractive, with simple lines and minimal adornments, the architectural exterior is not overly impressive compared to other similar structures in Northern Spain. Perhaps, when it was built, there wasn't the money available. I did not go inside which may have been more impressive.
Lots of steps, very old architecture, peaceful cloisters.
