Some nice stained glass windows, nice little cloister at the back. Organ was played when we were there and it was lovely to sit and listen too. The Cathedral is free but you are asked for a contribution.

Really enjoyed this church, so old. Well worth a look. Church is under restoration at the moment but did not get in the way of our visit.

Well worth a look if visiting the area. Parking nearby, free on Saturdays. Typical cathedral with everything you would expect and more. There is renovation going on so we couldn’t see the famous astrological clock.

Must see when you are in town. Brilliant architectural proportions, lots of natural light coming in, interesting artifacts to discover. Renovation is almost complete.

We popped in here as so close to the entrance from our hotel. It is a magnificent building which when the restoration is complete will be stunning. Well worth a look if you are in the vincinity.

Lovely cathedral, with an astonishing Rubens painting (1616) just there for all to see. Pick up the 30c leaflet in the shop to identify all the things of interest to see while you're there.
