I have chosen to review the Bell Tower separate from the Cathedral. It is magnificent enough to stand on its own and it has a separate entrance. The tower is the third tallest brickwork tower in the world. It is crowned with an intricately designed...More

The cathedral has got a facade which is extraordinary. With two row of loggias, in the middle 3 statues, it is beautiful. When you get inside, you will wonder how monumental this cathedral is, and how it is decorated.

Light a candle, sit and relax in quiet contemplation and say a prayer. Let peace wash over you as you marvel at stained glass windows.

A surprising interior, absolutely exquisite. And quiet. You can spend a thoughtful moment in the pews and then walk around. It's good for a hot day.
