As cathedrals go, this is about the same as all the rest of them. There is nothing here that holds any "wow" factor, but it's still worth wandering in and taking a look if you're in Siguenza. But I wouldn't beat a path to get...More

This is another remarkable cathedral. Next year 850 years old. The size of the structure is enormous and one can only wonder how they could build this then. Don’t miss if in area

In der Sakristei verschwindet gerade eine Gruppe mit einem grimmigen Führer, der darüber wacht, dass wir uns nicht anschliessen. Hätte er uns nicht Sigüenza is...More

Huge building considering the size of the town and well worth a visit. Busy with school children when we were there so not exactly quiet! The bullet holes really made you reflect on the buildings fascinating past.
