There is an admission charge so best to go when there is mass and go to mass and see church afterwards. I am NOT a fan of paying to pray and we always say at least one prayer on each visit

Beautiful old cathedral with interesting history. Costs around 5 euro to go inside, includes audio tour in many languages which tells interesting history behind different parts and areas in cathedral. Beautiful architecture and historic art inside.

There is an entrance fee of €5.50. You get a handset which guides you around this vast cathedral. It’s so unusual with beautiful stone pillars and archways. You see lots of areas not usually seen. Allow an hour at least to fully enjoy the tranquility...More

The cathedral is large and beautiful. It is one of the main things to see here when you visit. The town is so charming with all the stone buildings and wall. A must see on your visit.
