This is well worth spending some time going round. It costs 3 euros and are given earphones and is well worth it. There is so much to see, more than usual. The cathedral, cloisters and museum

We rented the audio tour program and found the detailed, longer tour fascinating. The altar is amazing - truly an honor to spend time here. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

The admission price includes an excellent audio tour that covers both the cathedral and its museum. Very worthwhile experience and should not be missed.

Oviedo, with Seville and Toledo´s cathedral have the most important reredos in Spain. As well, the stained glass were incredible!!

We are ending our Camino Norte here and this Cathedral was the best place to do so . So many relics and a great audio tour . Of special interest for pilgrims is the cemetery with the Olive tree representing eternal life.

A stunning visual experience. Even if you are not remotely religious, the art and sculptures take your breath away.

Although a city with a long history there is not really much to see in Oviedo although it is a nice city with the usual Spanish nightlife. The cathedral is however well worth a visit. The audio guide in English is clear and walks you...More

I tried to visit twice on a Saturday afternoon today, at 2pm and 5pm. Surely the cathedral in this city could be kept open through the day? I know that Spanish churches are pretty much museums these days, but very occasionally people do want to...More
