I would recommend you take the free guided tour. It takes about an hour but really brings the place to life and show you things tyu wouldn't have noticed. In the end we spent about 2 hours there.

The Gothic Cathedral is astoundingly beautiful. We didn't manage to see the central nave and the dome because the ticket a were too expensive: 15 pounds per person

£10 to get in, £15 quid to go up the tower.....If the price had been five pounds I would have gone in and probably given another five as a donation towards the restoration. Just too expensive for non banana boat travellers
