Its history was well told in the booklet I was given at the door and only a 3 euro donation. Magnificant stained glass work.

The cathedral is constructed in a fashion that greatly enhances the quality of sound, I am told, I have taken in a number of concerts in here this year, all as part of the City of Culture, and I can attest to that. The concerts tend to be on Wednesdays at lunchtime, but do vary, if you are a tourist... More

I wasn't expecting that much but found visiting the cathedral a great experience. The churchyard is full of interesting monuments and gravestones, the cathedral is a wonderfuls pace with more historic monuments and there is a lot of information to explain features. The main west door is superb.

A modest cathedral with beautiful stained glass window and interior. Friendly, welcoming guides and an intersting history. Close to St. John's Castle Museum which is well worth a visit and should be on Trip Advisor. Piano recital was occuring.

the grounds and the church were beautiful. the detail inside the church was very detailed and intricate. the cemetery on the grounds was interesting. there was a recommended donation of 3 euro per person but we gave 5 i believe. the donation went to keeping the grounds as they are.

Extremely poor experience. The church is a mess. Nothing to be seen. Trash allover the place, seems that nobody cares about this place for decades. Don't wast your time on this.

the graveyard is very interesting. there is a part of the graveyard, gate locked to left of front church door, that is very airy and a bit spooky. standing at the gate u get a foul smell and a very cold breeze. the experience is one that will stay with u.
