Two churches stood side by side, with a 3-4 metre gap between them. Over time, a roof was fitted joining the 2 churches, and making them into a single church. The doors to the original churches are still there. You can see the different styles...More

The cathedral is nothing that unusual, in one way. But the combination of relative simplicity with the awesome chandelier and glittery ceiling rather blew us away! We were glad we walked up.

We were 1 of only 2 couples in the Bell Tower. You have to go into the Gift Shop and ask the lady. It costs E. 1.50 each and is well worth it. 100 steps to the top and you're standing next to the Bells....More

The cathedral itself is free to enter and if you are interested in churches and church architecture, (as I am), then it’s a must see. The most interesting aspect lies in the fact that the present cathedral is a “composite” of two earlier churches. There...More
