Prepare to step back in time as you pass through both the old and 'new' cathedral. The audio guides are excellent and essential for the visit. Unfortunately they don't allow photos to be taken in the cathedral and are quite vigilant. It's absolutely magnificent, grand,...More

A church that asks for an admitance fee is kind of contrary to Jesus throwing the money lenders oout of the temple isn't it?
