Description

Get an entry ticket to visit the UNESCO-listed Cathedral of Santa Maria in Lugo, better known as the Lugo Cathedral. Admire the impressive architectural structure and hear about the historical and cultural significance of this site with a free audio guide. Learn about the cathedral's history dating all the way back to late Roman times when a temple was built after the evangelization of the city. Though no trace of that original church remains, the current structure can be traced back to the 12th century. Work continued on the cathedral over centuries, resulting in the building's unique blend of architectural styles, ranging from the Romanesque north door to the Neoclassical west façade. Head inside to discover the longest and narrowest floor plan of any Hispanic cathedral and marvel at the lavish Churrigueresque altar surrounded by stained glass windows. Make sure to visit the Cathedral Museum, which is included in your entry ticket. View the museum's fascinating archaeological exhibition and extensive art collection, which includes works by Cornielles de Holanda, Joannes de Boloña, and many other artists.
