What a lovely surprise! There’s so much to see in this beautiful Cathedral for a small fee. Call it a donation rather than an entrance fee. more »
I loved it. The church is small but it has the treasure and many tiles. The cloister. And the tower has an incredible view of the city. around the cathedral there were musicians that made the climate wonderful.
A very nice and quiet cathedral. We went during the day and were the only people inside. A single entry ticket gets you access to everything including the towers and museum. Great viewpoint for taking pictures just outside the cathedral as well.
