Up a hill but the No. 9 bus from the railway station takes you right there. There was a lady inside, tidying up she spoke no English but I just showed her my camera and she smiled and nodded. The restriction is during services I...More

We had climbed all the way through the town in order to visit this cathedral but were rather disappointed. It is a fairly basic Catholic church, with the most interesting feature being the undercroft below the High Altar. Also, we were very unsure about photography....More

The stroll up to reach this cathedral is very lovely and picturesque and this place of worship is situated in the walled part of the upper city. The Cathedral is in general quite austere but peaceful with very nice interior. Really worth the exercise

The Cathedral is nice and stands overlooking the old city. It is nicely decorated and some woodcarvings are very nice.

The cathedral lies at the top of the hill on the edge of the old town, lots of steps, or a long walk around them are needed, but worth it to see the cathedral square and look at the cathedral itself. After seeing lots of...More

If you are in the old town, it is worrth a detour up to the cathedral, althought the route we took required uss climbing steps. However, at the top we noticed it could be accessed by car.
