  • Visit not to be missed: wealth of comments and explanations, watch technical prowess to multiple "complications" as amazing as the other

  • The clock is located in a small room, by side of the Cathedral, is accessed either by qq steps, either by the street and it goes up. The guided tour is paid € 3. The clock is very impressive and the narrowness of the room does not value and it's heartbreaking. Otherwise it's just amazing a such ingenuity... to see it anyway, to reward the artist who designed it.

  • The watch is truly sensational and absolutely worth seeing. On the other hand, it must be said that the entry applies only to an approx. 15-square-meter room. So, 3 euro too much are entry, especially when you factor in the shabby state of space and poor lighting. A renovation would be overdue that the artwork in the right context can be presented. After a maximum of 20 minutes has explored everything.
