  • I did the tour of the great organ of the Cathedral. Don't miss to register beforehand because a lot of people are interested. The guide we had very well explained everything he needed, then he got play us pieces from these first explanations and then we were able to ride and discover the whole. It was very interesting. He had children in the group, and all have loved and even ask questions. Do (just a few dates July August).
