The cathedral is small and you won't spend long here, but it's completely free. If you're expecting gold encrusted and lavish like the big catholic cathedrals you will be disappointed. This cathedral is small and somewhat minimalist, but it is beautiful and in excellent condition....More

Have seen a lot of churches in my travels in Europe and this one was slightly underwhelming but still the jewel of the old town. Nice views from outside the church and was pleased that it was free to enter.

It was built in 1450's and became a Cathedral in 1723. It has big triangular roof. Unfortunately, it was under renovation when I visited it in May 2019.
