This is a very impressive building especially when you realise that having been completed in 1838 it is not nearly as old as it looks. We each paid our 5 euro entrance fee and were given a hand held device with recordings of information on all of the main features which are number referenced. At all times the recordings refer to the cathedral as "The Temple" We were immediately struck by the netting which protects you from plasterwork falling from the ceiling, a very sad sight which If ever it gets to be a renovation project will be a massive and costly operation. We very much enjoyed the crypt with it's echo and the recess with the solid silver monstrance. No attempt other than the usual offertory boxes is made to extract any money from visitors and there is no souvenir shop such as is found in many cathedrals.
