The highlight of this hillside town is the Catedral de Santa María de Sigüenza. This cathedral is Romanesque, with later additions such as the Gothic-Plateresque cloisters. In one of the chapels is the Tomb of El Doncel, built for Martín Vázquez de Arce, Isabel of Castile’s page. He was killed in battle against the Moors in 1486. The sacristy has a notable ceiling carved with flowers and cherubs.
