The Se Catedral is under re-construction (valid to our visit, October 2018 but looks like at least another 2 months of work). Yet, the view from the outer court is magnificant. You can see the river (mainly on your left) and a great part of...More

We just walked up to the cathedral. Line wasn’t bad at all. You only pay if you want to see More than the main sanctuary.
