  • A beautiful cathedral... the stain glass windows alone are worth visiting. The "3 hares" in the inner graveyard are a unique symbol that fans of architecture will appreciate. The cathedral is impressive on many many levels and the volunteer guides are wonderful people willing to share a house of God. A wonderful visit...
