Just from outside

It is a very nice church, but if there is no concert, you can not visit it. The street which leads to the church isn't in the best condition.

One of the biggest cathedrals in town. Real gothic. Now inactive as a church, but still worth a visit. In May 2016 it was partially under reconstruction.

The church itself is really imposing and the order of nun's have occupied this monastery for hundred's of year's but it was the whole street and church that caught my eye.

This church belonged to the order of the Poor Clares. This order is regarded the strictest women's order of the Roman Catholic church.

This is a lovely building. However we could not get access. It appears you can only get in when there is a concert or so we were told.We were looking forward to visiting as we have a Poor Clares Church and convent where we live.

This is near the old town and the bus station, so is convenient to visit. The building is beautiful and ancient. It is worth a visit to see this nice church.

The location and the view of the old street is beautiful, dating back in time with a lot of history, around 14th-15th centuries. This place takes you to a different era in the history.

Historical church from 14th century is located on one of the oldest streets in downtown. Nowadays serves as library and concert hall. Worth for a visit.
