  • It's just a cathedral. It's is beautiful don't get me wrong but it will kill no more than half an hour if you look and walk super slow 
  • Its a shame that they don't do services throughout the week only on a Sunday but still well worth a walk around. 
  • Well worth visting. The layout was unusual compared to many cathedral - an underchurch, no crypt. The colouring has gone dark over the years but it suits it.

  • Absolutely beautiful cathedral. Went on a weekday and it wasn't crowded at all. You can walk throughout the property and up the hill to The Necropolis. The views are absolutely beautiful.
  • Impressive Gothic cathedral well worth a visit. Great photo opportunities. Some of the best examples of stained glass windows in the country. Well worth visiting the nearby Necropolis if you have time also.
  • One of the best cathedrals I have ever seen! The ceiling and the architecture are impressive to say the least!
  • Great historic site, but not as impressive or large as we were led to believe. But very interesting and a great view of the necropolis.
  • Amazing place to visit, full of historical information. A must see
