We went to the 11am mass on Sunday morning and found it easy to follow and very welcoming. Two children were baptised during the service and at the end there was a blessing for engaged couples.

From the minute you enter this beautiful Cathedral you are struck by the wealth of history and beauty that surrounds you.

I visited the cathedral with the group, have booked the excursion at the tourism office. The building itself is impressive and the local guide was good. The organ concert in outside the cathedral was a marvel!

Rather a sombre building but for €1 you can operate the floodlights to get a better view of the baroque altar.

An amazing experience. I have visited many old churches but this beats them all. The structure, the paintings and the ambience was extraordinary. When we visited there were no ceremonies taking place and I would have liked to experience that.

Pictures cannot show the beauty of this cathedral. Large and stunning. Well worth the visit. The chapels are stunning, the coffin of St Jean is impressive. Should not be missed.
