  • What to see
    Gothic and Neoclassical basilica

The Basilica Cathedral of Segorbe began its construction in the 13th century in the Valencian Gothic style. Although some remains of the wall and Gothic elements have survived, the cloister stands out as a rare and attractive example of Valencian Gothic architecture, with a trapezoidal plan that adapts to the irregularity of the adjacent wall. The cathedral temple, built in the 13th century and consecrated in 1534, underwent renovations in the 18th century that, although they concealed the Gothic work, contributed to the creation of an outstanding Neoclassical architecture, becoming one of the architectural references of the region and Spain.

The Cathedral of Segorbe, with its single nave, chapels between buttresses and octagonal choir, is an architectural testimony that spans several centuries. The bell tower, with elements that recall the typology of Muslim minarets and Romanesque towers, reflects its evolution in the 16th and 17th centuries. The cloister, with a trapezoidal plan and two floors, shows the architectural mastery of the 14th to 16th centuries, and stands out for its collection of medieval grids. The Cathedral of Segorbe, with its rich history and architecture, is important in the Route of the Holy Grail as a monument that combines Gothic and Classical elements and references to different periods, enriching the experience of those who follow this sacred route.
