Enjoyed the self guided church tour. The cost was around 4 Euros I believe . The folks at the front desk were very helpful and answered any questions that we asked. The brochure that guided you were very informative.

A beautiful church and grounds in an historic city. I could have spent hours in St. Mary's, sublime. Beautifully kept with a fascinating history. I am looking forward to visiting again.

Beautiful Cathedral both externally and internally with lots of history. We went into the Cathedral after being recommended by our walking tour guide. A charge of 4 euros is requested to contribute to the upkeep of the Cathedral which we where happy to pay.

Visited the cathedral in November. Just over the river from the town. Beautiful Cathedral, well worth a visit. The graveyard outside is also very interesting. A small donation is asked for the up keep on entrance.

You have to pay a small entry fee but it is worth it. It will not take long but if you like visiting churches this is worth a short visit
