This church has the second highest number of stained glass windows. The most is in Chartres, France. It is quite magnificent. Its also best to have a local guide.

This Cathedral is truly amazing, the stained glass windows are very beautiful, especially the Rose windows. we were lucky that it was a sunny morning and so saw the windows at their best. I loved the architecture, it is a Gothic masterpiece.

Very beautiful cathedral with an interesting history. Nice self guided audio tour is available. Go early to catch the eastern sun through the stain glass window.
