Things to do Astorga Essential Tour, Palace and Cathedral
Our visit begins in the gardens, where we will appreciate not only the attractive shape of the building and the details of its facade, but also the beautiful natural environment in which it is located. We will see the moat and the staircase, giving way to the interior. Through the spiral staircase we will access the four levels of the palace: the basement, the ground floor, the noble floor and the upper floor. We will visit various rooms, finally visiting the Museum of the Roads that is housed inside the palace.
We will continue with the visit to the cathedral, once inside the Church, we will observe the different altarpieces that are kept in it: the main altarpiece of the apse, that of the Virgin of the Majesty, that of San Miguel ... etc. We will continue with the choir stalls, the imposing organ, the sacristy, the cloister. Once outside, we will talk about the main façade, in which we will contemplate the laborious mastery in which the different scenes that make it up are sculpted. To finish with the southern façade, completely different in style as it was from a later period.
