  • During a visit of the Cathedral we could attend the explanation given by a small but very charming cloister, cannot be visited freely by the public. Pity that the façade is currently undergoing restoration.

  • A moment of reflection and rest, hoping for a better world without prejudice. Walk inside and stay a moment to the altar stare and feel the true faith.

  • Really curious building and clear example of that testimony of the passage of time: in a few minutes can pass of a Paleochristian baptistery of s. IV, a Romanesque nave, then another Gothic nave and finish in another Baroque. Just in front of the altar, graves of archbishops... from century XIV... Some of them had been desecrated in 1794. Two choirs of two rows constructed in wood, one on each side of the Gothic nave, each with an organ in the upper part. How does not remember any composite work two choirs...

  • A nice cathedral with some wonderful large paintings. A bit dark, but that is kind of usual. Got a special little tour into a normally locked side garden. The former Roman columns were quite well preserved. Worth a visit.
  • Excellent guide tour of claustre. Very detailed explanation and could see that she was really motivated. Recommended.
  • Nice cathedral but not especially different from other. Walking distance from city center.
  • Historic but not spectacular. At least that's what I thought this morning. Looked much better tonight when there was a (free) Mozart concert being held there!
  • OK
