The Segovia Cathedral was one of my favorite parts of my day in Segovia. The cathedral is absolutely gorgeous, I feel like the exterior of the cathedral gives off a very bold statement which is a stark contrast to the elegance of the interior. The cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral built in the mid-sixteenth century and was the last Gothic cathedral built in Spain.
It costs 3 euros to enter the cathedral and it’s definitely worth it. Or if you’re like me and my friends, we tagged on to the back of a big tour group and got in without paying.. shhhh don’t tell!
The interior of the cathedral has a beautiful vaulted stone ceiling, gorgeous stained glass and stunning sculptures and altars in the various chapels (capillas). There are more than 20 chapels around the cathedral and some of the most prominent chapels include the Santísimo Sacramento, the Chapel of San Andrés, and the Chapel of the Deposition.
As you can see, the cathedral is massive and there is a lot to explore. It’s definitely worth paying the entrance fee to see this stunning cathedral. You can also get a gorgeous view of the cathedral and the rest of Segovia from the top of the Alcázar tower.
Segovia is a great day trip from Madrid and is a breath of fresh air (literally) to get away from the hustle and bustle of Spain’s capital. If you’re looking for more to see while you’re in Segovia, don’t miss out on the Roman Aqueduct and the Alcázar of Segovia!
