A gem

Not too much to look at from the outside, but inside it is beautiful, and definitely worth a visit. The art work was amazing.

The cathedral is dedicated to Ste Reparate, a young martyr, and is quite beautiful and worth seeing. There are informational plaques throughout the cathedral explaining the art in detail. The church became a cathedral in the 16th century, and has a layout similar to St. Peter's in Rome, including a triple nave and transept. The chapels are incredibly beautiful and... More

This baroque cathedral has been recently renovated and all the fat cherubs have clean faces. This operatic , wedding cake view of heaven is very sad when grubby and just about convincing with the shine back on.

We happened upon this place whilst wandering around the old town. Although plain from the outside, the inside is so different. There are three organs and ten ornate chapels, until the end of the 17th century each of the chapels was connected to a different guild which had the responsibility and expense of maintaining them. The high altar is surmounted... More

We love churches (in moderation) and there was something different about this Cathedral - it was sort of homely and pretty, and very welcoming. It's easy to find and worth a look; a very relaxing place to sit and contemplate for a while and there's lots to look at.
