Lonely Planet review
Pamplona’s main cathedral stands on a rise just inside the city ramparts amid a dark thicket of narrow streets. The cathedral is a late-medieval Gothic gem spoiled only by its rather dull neoclassical facade, an 18th-century appendage. The vast interior reveals some fine artefacts, including a silver-plated Virgin and the splendid 15th-century tomb of Carlos III of Navarra and his wife Doña Leonor. The real joy is the Gothic cloister , where there is marvellous delicacy in the stonework.
The Museo Diocesano occupies the former refectory and kitchen, and houses an assortment of religious art, including some fine Gothic woodcarvings. The cathedral itself is open daily for free access outside the above stated hours, but you can’t access the cloisters or museum.
