On a sheer beauty scale, this Cathedral is simply overwhelming in detail and symbolism. It is fascinating to learn the historical context of each area also.

This is a gorgeous cathedral. We have been here several times and have enjoyed it every time. If it is crowded, we just sit and wait until the crowds thin out. Sometimes there is music which is lovely to listen too in these surroundings.

The high altar is the showpiece of the cathedral and quite lovely as are the... More

Wow, what a gem of a church. So beautiful inside and amazing how big and golden it is. Worth it to see the architecture and the peacefulness you feel.

A nice church located in a pretty little square. We didn't see it inside but from the outside it's worth to have a look and take pictures.

Beautiful Baroque- style church! Do not allow picture taking without paying a euro but well worth a visit.

A very beautiful church! It's massive in the inside too! We went and sat down and listening to man playing the piano and signing inside for a while before heading back out into the sun! It's lovely :)
