  • Old Cathedral that surprises by its dimensions in such a small town. Magnificent stained glass windows, colourful, well-tended to the smallest detail. It is worth

  • It is a completely renovated monument outside qhi fits perfectly into this medieval site. The Interior also deserves a renovation but the dimensions of the nave are impressive. Visit not to be missed.
