This is a cathedral like many beautiful Gothic architecture, but if you plan your visit to hear the fantastic organ or the chiming of the bells, you will have a fantastic experience.

What an amazing work of art, every angle so picturesque. Not a must see but definitely if you're around, a nice photo opportunity. Beautiful area to relax and park to have a picnic.

Maybe there are just too many cathedrals in Europe, I personally didn't find this one special. The architecture is majestic, and the interior is done to detail. Great view at night with lights. Recommend 30 minutes to 1 hour for pictures and visit.

The Cathedral was centrally located and easily accessible. It was very impressive both viewing internally and externally. Entry to the Cathedral was free but donations were welcome. Nice to come and have a look at this Roman Catholic Church.
