A beautiful cathedral with the customary wooden carvings and impressive stained glass windows. A much needed sanctuary where you can appreciate the tranquility and engage in quiet contemplation.

Not one of the great cathedrals but interesting nonetheless. Super welcome from the volunteers who pointed out features of interest. Good guidebook and free leaflet if you don't want to pay for one. Don't miss the lovely monument in the bookshop!
