  • We stumbled on a great guide (all volunteers) who has taken the time to explain the history and legends of the Cathedral. Big favorite stained glass. Not to be missed.

  • 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
