“Stunning outside, more modest interior”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

This cathedrale has a stunning set of cupolas and a campanile with many different aspects from the narrow streets of this old part of town. Its interior is much more modest but there is some very attractive modern glass, some of which, is delightfully understated.

“Peaceful cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

This cathedral is beautiful both in and outside. It is huge, and has a number of small chapels around the sides which was unexpected. There is a guide in several languages for a very small charge...20 cents which helps hugely your understanding of how and when it was constructed and the various changes that have occurred during the centuries. There is a modern alter in the centre, but strangely this still feels in keeping with the old. The highly sculptured wooden wall covering is stunning and also the high pulpit - carved out of one piece of walnut wood is truly amazing.
We were not there for that long but it felt a very tranquil area.

The paving stones were nearly completed outside and will make the whole area very light and airy.

Well worth the visit, even for a short while.
