“Has 3 large paintings by Rubens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

The main highlight in this place are the large Rubens' paintings on the wall (see attached photo). The cathedral is old but it is very serene to be sitting inside. Also, the views of the town are very scenic outside, just behind the Cathedral.

“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
