This cathedral is magnificent both inside and out, you must go and see for yourself .I don't know if there are any plans to complete the second tower however this does not stop your enjoyment of the visit

The cathedral was beautifuI but 5 euros for entrance to a church is a little too much! I recommend to go when it is free

This is by far the most beautiful building I have ever experienced. The artefacts and the organ pipes are magnificent. Its only €5 for one adult and a wonderful visit
