Grand and beautiful cathedral with a very opulent interior. There is a 2 euro admission charge which I haven't had to pay before. But it's well worth the small charge of course.

Small but perfectly formed with some interesting pieces especially the choir and the organ. The cloisters provide a pleasant place to stroll. Be careful about visit times-closed Mondays and on Sundays you need to time carefully pre or post mass
