  • It is a church with a certain large Tower go right into the street from the station go straight, hit the gate of the city. When I visited the wall had been organized to repair in my area, but I saw a unique Gargoyle (a gutter). This Gargoyle also places new is that it seems.

  • The Cathedral is located in a pleasant environment next to a large parking lot with trees. It is impressive but we have deplored the lack of light during the visit inside the Cathedral. The access is through one small side door on the other side of the parking lot. The main gate was closed during our visit.
