Segovia Cathedral is the last Gothic cathedral to be built in Spain. Fronting the historic Plaza Mayor in Segovia, it stands on the spot where Isabella I was proclaimed Queen of Castile. Affectionately called la dama de las catedrales, Segovia Cathedral has a supremely Gothic exterior combined with a surprisingly bare interior, but contains numerous treasures.

What To Expect
Cathedral of Segovia
Discover the last Gothic cathedral with this admission ticket. Entrance is through the north transept. The interior, illuminated by 16th-century Flemish windows, is light, bare and uncluttered, with a large Gothic choir (15th-century, predating the cathedral) placed in the center. Across from the choir in the east end is the high altar, with an 18th-century altarpiece by Sabatini.
The walls and apse are lined with more than 20 chapels. The third chapel on your right from the entrance (Capilla de San Cosme y San Damian) has a lamentation group in wood by the 17th-century Baroque sculptor Gregorio Fernández.
The Blessed Sacrament Chapel (created by the flamboyant Churriguera) features stained-glass windows, elaborately carved choir stalls, and 16th- and 17th-century paintings, including a reredos portraying the deposition of Christ from the cross by Juan de Juni.
Across from the entrance, on the southern transept, is a door opening into the late-Gothic cloister, which is older than the cathedral — it and the elaborate door leading into it were transported from the old cathedral and are the work of architect Juan Guas.
Under the pavement immediately inside the cloisters are the tombs of Juan and Rodrigo Gil de Hontañón; that these two lie in a space designed by Guas is appropriate, for the three men together dominated the last phase of the Gothic style in Spain.
Off the cloister, a small museum of religious art, installed partly in the first-floor chapter house, has a white-and-gold 17th-century ceiling, a late example of Mudéjar artesonado work. The museum contains jewelry, paintings, and a collection of rare antique manuscripts.
Admission Ticket Included
Huge and monumental building which dominates the city
Beautiful cathedral with spectacular architecture. Segovia Cathedral is one of the later Gothic cathedrals in Spain and Europe, was built in the years 1525 - 1768. The cathedral was initially built in the Gothic style, later in the Renaissance style. Due to many years of construction, the interior of the cathedral is decorated according to the styles of different eras. Its interior is very spacious, large and very easy to explore. Possibility to climb the tower. Monumental, spectacular cathedral outside, beautiful interior worth seeing, low price of 3 euros. It is really worth it.
Lovely from the outside at least!
Beautiful Cathedral with spikes and a general wonderful architecture that carries much more history than we can imagine.
Unfortunately I could not get in, due to COVID.
Second only to St Peter’s Rome
This is one of the most stunningly beautiful cathedrals I have had the privilege to visit. From the outside in absolutely not to be missed
Self guided tour
Worth it to buy tickets to skip the line. Castle and artifacts are just ok. Good scenery. Not too crowded.
Art gallery was good. Amazing cathedral, absolutely huge. However I was disappointed that we could not get an English speaking tour. We did however have an automated audio guide but could not walk around with it.
