If you are a painting lover, you must see this cattedrale which is decorated with almost painting anywhere in the interiors such as ceiling, walls, corridors, etc, almost no space empty without paintings. And All in good conditions, renovated or not renovated.

The exterior of the cathedral belies the magnificence of the interior. It is one of the greats of European medieval church decoration. A must see.
