Impressive cathedral. Sadly, a lot of nice cathedrals start to blend together when you tour around Europe but the detail and stained glass windows on this one stood out for some reason. It’s a definite must for this city but not reason enough to go...More

Imposing building, absolutely huge inside. Lovely square in front of cathedral with coffee tables under trees, and gorgeous old houses on either side the square.

Visited on a Sunday and it's a lovely old style church but there was nothing to indicate it was open to the public or if it was open at all! Maybe should have just pushed the door but didn't want to be disrespectful!
