“Nice on the outside, boring inside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

It would be hard to avoid this landmark. The view from outside the church is nice. Don't fret if you don't get a chance to see the inside of the church, because it is quite boring.

Just a must see place! Also beautiful during the evening with the light. Very good place to have an overview of the town.

“A White Citadel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This Cathedral was covered in snow when I visited. It's like a bif, white beacon keeping watch over the harbour as water traffic of all sizes ebbs and flows.
The church itself is steeped in history, and is a must
