  • Yeah, so I like Cathedrals that are pretty and give me a spiritual feel. I don't like (for example) St. Peter's in Rome as it's too big and too distant to induce any sense of feeling in me at all. Gla...  more »
  • This Cathedral is an absolute must-see for architectural or historian but also to all others who appreciate beautiful building. The stained glass Windows are breathtakingly beautiful and you can literally feel the pregnancy of history of. It can be found wherever one of the volunteer leaders who like to tell more about the Cathedral.

  • It has a really nice, relaxed atmosphere which is different to some of the other, more famous Cathedral's I've been to. Some gorgeous window's and art which makes it worth a look.  more »

  • 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
