“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

The place is in ruins but it is very good and with the audio guide it gives you a lot of useful information. If you are going to visit the audio guide is a must otherwise you will not be able to appreciate the rooms which are basically empty and in ruins.

“It's a gift shop”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

It is basically a gift shop and there are two sections where children can play. It is where you pay to enter the bishop's palace though.

“Hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

You could easily miss the bishops palace as it's at the side of the cathedral, but it's a real marvel if your interested in history, I stayed there for hours

“A taste of medieval ecclesiastical life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

The ruins of the palace are well maintained but the audio handset really made this come alive. Well worth visiting.

“Incredible historic site”

Amazing historic site. Worth getting the audio guide to learn about the ruins/remains of the building.
