  • A place to feel at PEACE...non judgemental just whole and loved......the Cathedral is breathtakingly beautiful inside & out....the LIGHT that shines through to each different dimension capturing the essence of the beauty within.....the HEART speaks volumes
  • It worths a visit. It is located in a lovely town. I had the chance to join an Easter ceremony there, and I felt part of the community. It is a place not only beautiful for the building itself but for the people I met there.
  • Stunning, beautiful cathedral. Very easy to spend an hour or two mooching around here but bring your camera!
  • Beautiful building well worth a visit. The only 3 spired medieval cathedral in country. Fantastic cathedral choir.
  • Nice place to visit been there plenty of times and well worth walking around the out side nice buildings and a good place to explore.
