The staff was terrifically rude....but the cathedral is totally worth it anyways. The windows and the stonework are beautiful. Don't miss the lepers peep hole. Sad and fascinating

I went to the Cathedral knowing it would be beautiful and I was not disapointed! There was actually a wedding ceremony taking place and i was able to see the altar from the back of the church without bothering the wedding. It is truly worth the visit and serenity found only in a cathedral.

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.
