  • Tranquil place with some easily admired architecture.
  • Very easily accessible. The tower is a bit of a climb - but well worth it. Great views!.
  • Great cathedral
  • Well worth a visit if in the area
  • Unfortunately, I had no opportunity to see the Cathedral in the middle because it was closed, but from the outside is impressive.
