Another must see on the tourist trail. Impressive if somewhat glumy interior. Many art works, statues etc.

The Cathedral is very beautful, I'm catholic, so it caught my attention that there're priests liatening to tourists confessions . The architecture is great and the place is very well preserved. Also, it's really well located!

Very dark inside. Not a lot to see of visual appeal. I realise this is a holy place and not a tourist spot, but some are better than others, this isn't one of those. Did not even feel particularly religious.
If you don't see it, you have not missed anything.

I found this cathedral to be more impressive on the outside but not so much on the inside. There was a service going on when we visited which gave it character but have seen better cathedrals on my travels

The building has been altered over the years and displays an interesting range of styles, with, for example, the classic columns and pediments of the exterior set within arches. The interior is long, and larger than one might expect and while it has a good deal of ornamentation with the statues and interesting stained glass, it is not as over the top as some. Quiet and cool when we visited at opening time (10.00), it is well worth a look.
