This is absolutely one of the prettiest cathedrals we've been in across many European cities. That said they are doing some major renovation right now so good part of it is closed and the back is filled with equipment. We got a huge treat however...More

This was simply beautiful inside, it's free to enter and easy for disabled access/buggies so I recommend you go, however there is a silence policy understandably as it's a place of worship so if you have a screamer don't ruin it for everyone else. There...More

a towering masterpiece of marble awaits in this ancient edifice. Ideally, grab a hymn book if you are attending mass as they really encourage the congregation to sing (as opposed to an elite choir, on my visit)

Lovely cathedral with so many stunning colours around it and lots of life to appreciate and feel around it. Must see!

The front of the cathedral looks very confusing as it originally was formed from two incomplete churches. The first one went back to early 13th century, while the other was started towards the end of the century. There's an oblong tower that's part Gothic on...More
