  • It is beautiful both inside and out. Much to see inside, besides there are many rooms with art and clothing of the bishopric.

  • Beautiful Cathedral. To my personally I was surprised very much. Although nothing as you arrive, we saw a security guard who informed us that he had to pay to see the Cathedral, thing which shocked me enough, certainly was worth. The interior is beautiful and enjoys a nice Museum. Altarpieces, images, objects of worship, chalices, the cloister... The most beautiful and surprising for me, choir made all in wood, is impressive. I was pleasantly surprised and I think that it is undoubtedly a place which is worth visiting.
