I certainly recommend visiting this wonderful cathedral. The interior is quite something to behold. I am told the windows were imported and may have ground stones of jewels in them

It was open when we were there on a weekday afternoon. I suggest you just go there. If it is not open, then wyou will still have seen some interesting houses along the way.
