  • a classic of visit when friends and family come. It is beautiful and there is a soothing calm. Highly recommend even if access to the Cathedral for people with disabilities like me, would appreciate a shuttle throughout the year. Older people would like also I think, I missed a lot of festivity, due complicated physical access. Feel free to take the guide, if it's always the young man, he is absolutely passionate about, and you will spend a nice time with him.
