The Cathedral is in the main historical centre. It is Romanesque with a surprising six towers. It was started in 975 and consecrated in 1009.

This is a large, impressive Romanesque cathedral. Perhaps most interesting is the adjoining 10th century (prayer) chapel off to the side - very unusual that such a chapel still exists. Don't miss the adjoining cloister - that is exceptionally beautiful and peaceful. However the cathedral...More
