Lovely place and so peaceful. The church is very well maintained and must be visited. If you get a chance to attend an event, it is even better. Really worth a visit.

The cathedral was about a 10 to 15 minute walk from Hannibal station. It was small, the interior was rather colourful and pleasant, but a 10 minute visit was all I really needed. Apart from the painted ceiling and walls, there isn't much of note...More

Not sure why someone would visit this cathedral, especially those who've been in a cathedral before. You cannot go up to the top for pictures, it's locked. Be advised that you pay extra for entry, not included in museum & arch. site ticket.
