  • Unfortunately I failed to enter the Cathedral, though I was very curious how it looks like on the inside. For tourists there is access to the I believe costs 1.5 euros. You can visit the elevator or the stairs. From there you can see the skyline of the city (see Veguetę). You can also walk up a few stairs to the top and go to the highest point of the tower. There is a very tight fit.
