This is a very different Christian structure. Very colourful inside with intricate geometry on the ceilings. Massive stained glass feature that is most of a wall. Combination of several added structures with a very colourful 800 year history. Well worth an interpreted visit.

It was easy to picture the town life revolving around this cathedral in ancient times and it is no different today. We took the guided tour which gives us the historical narrative that tells the story of this place and the people who lived there....More

The temple is not a large one, but the art and everything you see is marvellous. It's a museum in itself

It is very ornate inside!! Worth a visit definitely! Located in the centre of the city, a quick walk from the hot springs and the town hall, it’s good. Loads of shops and bakeries nearby as well!
