What a wonderful gem of a space they found below the Cathedral. I have visited several ruins similar to this but I think this was one of the best displays of history. Easy walk through the place and very interesting. Well worth your time.

This was an absolute surprise: the way this museum has been put together (architecturally, design wise, content and light design) is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best museums I have ever visited... While you walk under the existing Cathedral you see...More

This is clearly one of the best preserved and excavated historical site in human history. It's just amazing to learn how the cathedral was built over and over again for centuries. One can see the different kind of stones used during those centuries stacked one...More
