We were just walking around and stopped in. The place was amazing, both in terms of the cathedral as well as the museum. The quality of the artifacts rivaled the best of a major museum without the crowds.

I got a chance to observe this beautiful cathedral just from the outside however I must admit that it still has enough power to impress. The architecture is remarkable ! You can literally time travel :)

If you're in Seu d'Urgell, I would recommend seeing the Cathedral and taking it in. But if you're not in the town, it is not a specific attraction that I would drive out of my way to see. Pretty, but there are much better Cathedrals...More

While the buildings and sculptural detail are superb and not to be missed, presentation and layout of the Diocesa museum is confusing and should be improved. The wonderful Beatus illuminated manuscript can easily be missed. There is a video in a dark room, where the...More
