Only to walk around it and view it from upclose or over the city's quarters is impressive. Going inside and taking the elevator up to the tower offers stronger emotions. However, only by knowing a bit more about its history can really put things together.

We were luckier enough to be able to ascend the tower of the church. The views from the top are magnificent. There is a lift to take visitors up and down.
