This is a very old atmospheric building which has been made visitor friendly without compromising the integrity of the church. It's fascinating from a Historical point of view, but also maintains a sense of reverence. Also good place to buy postcards.

Oldest building in the City. Medieval in origin and well worth a visit. Much of its original Catholic identity has been eradicated through the ages but vestiges are still to be found in the architecture.
