“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

A beautiful medieval cathedral with some of the best stained glass in Europe. It also as an Astrological clock and a brass meridian, look for the two holes in the windows that the sun shines through at solar noon to light a place on the meridian.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Having lived in Canterbury for few years which is famous for its Cathedral and charges accordingly for people to see it, this was a treat!
This Cathedral is by far the most impressive and beautiful architectural genius than any of the other Cathedrals I've seen before!
Unforgettable and free to enter too, you only pay to see the crypt which is quite a sight too!
I will definitely be back!

“Impressed by Notre Dame in Paris? Try this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Forget the crowds in Paris, Notre Dame. This magnificent cathedral has better stained glass and I believe, architecture by far. Much more a place of religion, much less of a commercial attraction.
