This was the last town on our 6 night barge journey. We visited a few of the designated sites, but strolling around this lovely town was just delightful.

This is a building worth a visit even if you are not 'of the faith'. Impressive architecture, well lit naturally, impressive stained glass, mosaic in places, and the very local inlaid pattern tiles. The whole site is well laid out, accessible, clean and well signed.

We came on a pilgrimage and only got to visit inside but it was beautiful. We did not get to have a mass inside but the surrounding grounds were lovely
