    Since September 2017 reopening after a lot of work. Very nice execution. Note two absolutely huge clams in real shells. Go ahead despite a rather plain exterior appearance.

    Very colorful and perfectly preserved stained glass. The outside is trite, but you get to be enchanted

    The term Cathedral I imagine often a grand and impressive construction work for with great pomp and circumstance. This Cathedral is what the exterior concerns the opposite. Pure simplicity and sobriety are the main features. The construction work does contain some important works of art. Unfortunately limited opening up.

    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.

    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.
