Big, beautiful and holy. Great place to visit. Good place to pray. This place is located a bit off centre but it certainly worth a visit.

So many tourist and everyone had cameras, which was nice that they allow cameras in the church Cathedral. Lots of things to take pictures of, if you like this type of thing.

A nice example of evolving Gothic architecture from 13th to 15th century. The wood carvings and yhe vitrails are very impressive.
