Worth a visit for 1 hour or so. Interesting interior. There are several churches around but all worth a visit. Some are more ornate than others. Men should remove their hats in all places of worship and respect the instructions regarding clothing, cameras etc.

In Winter has a particular appeal, snowwflakes are not annoying, and even the paved roads - so difficult to walk- are nice. The Cathedral is worth a visit!!

We visited the evening organ concert with different organists (most of them feminine) played pieces of different styles, permitting to explore wonderful possibilities of this organ, also very beautiful. The dome itself is very impressive from outside, but minimalistic inside.
