Awe-inspiring & Divine

Excellent

For me, the Cathedral of Segovia is the best sight in the city, even more so than the Aqueduct or Alcazar, which are both amazing in their own right. The Cathedral, though, has something special. It's a combination of the sheer size, the never-ending geometric detail of the domed ceilings, the dozens of ornate chapels and altars lining the walls, the soft light passing through the stained glass windows, and the holy quiet. It's overwhelming and upon entering you understand the biblical meaning of the word "awesome."

The place fills up quickly around 11 or noon with (often noisy) group tours, so make sure to try and get there first thing in the morning. Photography of all kinds is prohibited, but no one's really watching so you can snap away without your flash. If not, just take the visit slow: check out the small details in the chapels, enjoy the towering spaces, and sit a while in the choir area.

Cathedral of Segovia

This is a great architectural work of the three most striking places of the city near the famous Segovia Aqueduct and Alcazar. It is impressive both outside and inside and emphasize the view you get from it (along with the rest of the city) from the tower of the castle. The only thing is that you sweat so much climbing the stairs to reach the top, but it is worth it.

A must-visit place

Excellent

Inspiring and a must-visit place. The church is located on the main plaza and has a function as a museum.
