We visited this cathedral on a very cold day but felt warm inside. It is very well restored and preserved.

I have been to many cathedrals and was unimpressed with this one. Nobody about to answer questions. Cafe was functional.

This Cathedral is in the heart of the city. It is lovely and peaceful to walk around it and also to sit and pray. The ceiling is impressive
