  • Drop in! This once Catholic, now Protestant Church is different from others we’ve seen….Pop in and take a look. We were lucky enough to be there when a children’s choir was signing right out...

  • Amazing cathedral with Gothic style architecture. The building is clearly visible in this small town with few tall buildings. The twin towers looked massive from a distance, and even more imposing up close. Inside is richly decorated. There are many religious artifacts, paintings, sculptures, and relics. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area. There are also many street vendors selling great foods outside. This entire area is very pedestrian friendly.
  • Very large with a high ceiling. Here you can specifically see how kings where different from serfs. How they built structures. And how they differ to now. It's a great experience to be in a place that's older than the whole united states twice over.
  • Beautiful church with a beautiful design, the interior looks great. It's free to enter and there's a donation box for those who are willing to contribute.
  • Extremely beautiful, but you've to pay if you wanna go in.. I prefered to stay out and do some photos.
  • Donation requested but jlno mandatory fee to enter. Nice place
