  • Do not hesitate to visit this place. The entry door to cross is surprising by its modernity, the contrast is mesmerizing. Glass hammered and golden. Leaving the building, take the time to sit at the terrace of the Café opposite to admire details of the façade and the radiance of the light, on-site with herbs.

  • A cathedral interesting. Both outside and inside is really nice. Gloomy and dark as all churches North of the Alps at the entrance puts almost in awe. The stained glass Windows are spectacular and clearly explained in a book at the entrance. The gargoiles above the entrance are impacting almost fear but are still beautiful. Too bad it's almost hidden among the narrow streets of the old town and is little reported.

  • It was our first visit, January 1, at the end of the evening mass, as we passed "coincidentally" there. I don't know if it's only because of the location, or if mass has helped, but the energies were really very good tonight! I felt at peace, very serene, in a great inner calm. I will return again to "verify" if it's the site itself that vibrates so high! Except the door 'to Golden peas"too modern, who swears for my taste with the rest of the building, I loved visiting this Cathedral. The façade also worth a stop to admire him (in the light of historical notes displayed on the building). Do not hesitate to go there you relax!

  • Outside, the cathedral is impressive. Because closing at noon we could not get inside. The city is small and this is one of the sights, so it's worth seeing.
  • Beautiful church. Peaceful holly place
  • A stately Cathedral which is free to visit. The access doors are wonderful. In the church you have the option to burn a candle for someone.

  • The Cathedral, although it is small, it is pretty good. The inside is not to throw backyard rocket but not bad. The cathedral, which is small, is OK. It is not the best one I have ever seen but it's not bad.

  • Nice old church. Bowl for washing of hands made out of giant shell painting.
