Photographer's Note

From the outside you could mistake the catholic cathedral to be a mosque with its magnificent 50 m high golden dome (which was once real gold). Building work began on the cathedral in 1716 although it wasn't actually finished until 1838 From the inside it looks far more modest than most cathedral although for me this is a plus. The cathedral comes equipped with a crypt which is for me the highlight of the cathedral for it has an AMAZING echo. Every footstep sounds like a giants. I really can't describe the sound properly so you'll have to go see for yourself!!! The cathedral is open from 10-18:30 Monday to Friday. 10-16:30 Saturdays and 13-18:30 Sundays. It costs 4 € to enter. The price includes a visit to the Cathedral Museum too which is on pza, Fray Felix (Casa de la Contaduria). There is what is directly translated as 'culture timetable' on Sundays from 11-13 (mass is at 12). The Plaza outside the Cathedral is a very popular place to have a drink and a snack.
