A beautiful old cathedral located in the heart of this quaint city. Visit for a few moments of quiet reflection, even if you're not the religious type, and leave refreshed.

I love seeing different churches while travelling through Europe. So I was happy to have the opportunity to see a beautiful, old basilica, right within my own country! Worth the visit to look at the gothic inspired ceiling and altar.
