Very small, and being repaired while we were there. Beautiful artwork and an ornate pulpit and altar. St. Domnius is buried there. Also paid to see the Temple of Jupiter, which we could have skipped - just a small, locked room. Did not climb the tower.

the entrance fee was extremely cheap. The view from the top spectacular. However, I would have been very concerned indeed had there been more tourists climbing the tower (only one way up and down) Health and safety would have had a field day with this attraction in the UK. My brother was there in the height of season, and said... More

The cathedral was ok but the climb up the tower past the bells was great. The views from the top were lovely.

This was nothing like we thought it would be. Much smaller inside than we had imagined, but beautiful for it. Highly ornate with a central altar. I cannot comment on climbing the tower due to suffering from vertigo.

The visit to the cathedral is not complete without climbing the tower for the magnificent views of the city and sea. The old steps require giant steps but well worth the climb. Highly recommended.
