I'm not a religious person but I do enjoy visiting cathedrals to see the architecture, art, treasures, and cloisters. The Catedral de Santiago is worth a look if you're in the area and certainly worth more time if you're interested in the Campostela.

There is a combined ticket with the San Anton church nearby, and in the ticket an audio guide for both is included. This small cathedral is largely gothic in style, and is also rather sparsely decorated. So rather different from the large cathedrals further south....More

Beautiful building from the outside, but having to pay to enter a church is something I cannot agree with.

A rather classical gothic cathedral with no specific highlights. The inner cloister garden is nice. Expensive entrance fee. Not a required visit when in Bilbao.
