As you browse the magnificent cathedral, make sure you don't miss this; it's a bit hard to find in one of the side areas. It's incredibly ornate and a testament to amazing craftsmanship.

This room in the cathedral is a good example of what could be missed if you weren’t using a guide. We are firm believers of benefiting from all the reasons to tour cathedrals with a local guide. The Custodia de Arle is a contrast from...More

This monstrance is huge and extremely valuable and ornate. It is mostly gold with some silver and is about twice as tall as a person. You do have to seek it out but it is worth the effort to do so.

The craftsmanship of this piece is unbelievable. Hard to believe that they allow it to be carried through the streets once a year. It is located in it's own room in a corner of the Catedral. Do not miss it.
