Create an itinerary including Catedral de Segovia
Wherever you wander around town, the towering 16th-century Gothic style Catedral de Segovia looms above you. You should have no problems finding plenty of angles from which to photograph it. As you wander the building's perimeter, check out the sculpture of the Virgin Mary on the main facade. Once inside, take your time to appreciate the high vaults, dome, stained glass windows, and many paintings and sculptures. Head into the archive to see “The Synod of Aguilafuente,” the first book printed in Spain. The massive tower is only accessible with special permission from the cathedral's administrators, so don’t expect views. Put Catedral de Segovia and other Segovia attractions into our Segovia tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Absolutely amazing cathedral. I've seen a lot of them and this was impressive. One of the largest in Spain. All of the side rooms with the ornate statutes and places to pray, the center areas where they keep the valuables and lead worship, and the old original section that did not get destroyed hundreds of years ago.. all is fantastic. The organs were really impressive.
  • We booked this on line and includes the cathedral and tower visits. An incredible building with many paintings and items of interest. The tours are in Spanish but audio is provided in your language if required. We walked around the cathedral without the guide. The tower tour was an hour and quite a climb up the spiral staircase although there are stops on the way. All very interesting and worth the views from the bell room at the top
