Must stop by when visiting the old town. You will cross it a number of times if you spend a fair amount of time in the old town. Take ten minutes and take a walk around the cathedral.

It was spectacular and will be even better when done. The music playing near the altar added a special touch

Nicely decorated inside, and in the old town so that should be part of your old town city trip (and depending how big you're on religious art, you can spend 5 min or 2 hours). Unfortunately in August there were renovation works so it was quite noisy, but I had visited it before without these, and it was way more... More

This is a must, in spite of the renovations it is still worth going to. The artwork alone is worth the visit. From the outer it looks unremarkable but once you enter you will be amazed by the beauty of this magnificent church.

Like the Russian Church, the Cathedral was also under extensive repair at the time of our visit, so it is not possible for the visitor to see the full splendour of the interior.

Pop in to this beautiful cathedral for a some quite time while wandering around the old town. The friezes are beautiful. The church was having some work done while we were there

It's not very big but it is beautiful and the square outside is a great place to hang and have a cafe au lait...The paintings inside are beautiful but be aware that there are renovations going on. While you are here walk up to the cemetery on top of the hill for some awesome views

During day time or night time ST Reparate will be your friend! At night time concert and ice cream all around it and during day time tourists walking by and wondering inside!

The main entrance door is not open as they are renovating the centre of the Cathedral. Use the side door, clearly marked, and you can still view the magnificent interior. Buy a candle and make a wish to a Saint. Admire the wonderful decoration & the quiet, cool interior away from the crowds.
