“Unbelievable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

This is a pure Romanesque example, as seen on the pages of history of art tome. I spotted two pieces of Rubens, may be there were more.

“Make time for this”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Do find your way here. This is a very atmospheric church with 3 Rubens paintings. It is in a quiet square with a great viewpoint just round the corner.

“A real gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

The cathedral has had quite a history. It is difficult to say it is beautiful because the inside has deteriorated - the pillars show the effects of fire. But it has a certain charm. There are some lovely stain-glass windows and then, completely unexpectedly, there are 3 large Rubens paintings hanging on one wall. The authorities do not mind if you take photos, as long as you don't use flash. Parts of the cathedral as so plain, but some areas are beautiful. The survival of these 3 paintings is amazing, particularly as there is no protection, glass, alarms, shields, etc

“Old and interesting, just like me.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Liked the preservation of old buildings and this one seems to have been close to falling down. Happy to see the interior, as it is the first old building I've seen where the stones on the inside are weathered as badly as the one's on the outside.
