The individual chapels which line the walls, rich with gilt, and the glorious stained glass windows which flood the altar and other areas with light, lift the heart and soul. It is a real haven from the hustle and... More

The word 'stunning' sums this place up. With its Catalan Gothic style and built in the 1300's, it is well worth a look.

I visited the cathedral with the group, have booked the excursion at the tourism office. The building itself is impressive and the local guide was good. The organ concert in outside the cathedral was a marvel!

Rather a sombre building but for €1 you can operate the floodlights to get a better view of the baroque altar.

An amazing experience. I have visited many old churches but this beats them all. The structure, the paintings and the ambience was extraordinary. When we visited there were no ceremonies taking place and I would have liked to experience that.

Pictures cannot show the beauty of this cathedral. Large and stunning. Well worth the visit. The chapels are stunning, the coffin of St Jean is impressive. Should not be missed.

If you happen to be able to visit this magnificent cathedral when not encompassed with tourist, it is most definitely worth the time. Simple beautiful.

The cathedral is very beautiful with colourful stained glass. Building started in the 14th century. The ceiling towers above you. It is quiet and peaceful inside. It has many side chapels dedicated to different saints and at least 2 have golden altarpieces. Underneath the organ there is a passage leading to a Romanesque chapel where with a recumbent effigy of... More
