It is a wonderful cathedral, a marvellous example of gothic architecture. It is a bit pricey (7 euros) but it is really worth a visit. Audioguide was nice although it had some minor mistakes.

You don't get tired watching the magnificent works of art that contain this cathedral. The price of the tickets has been invested in its restoration.
