“past just now”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

its an icon, a place to stay alone for a while enjoying the history. in the name of God, a movie that tells you the building time.
all the stained glasses, take a time to see then heartedly, the sculptures, the paintings, there is so much to feel in and outside.

“Stunning”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

This cathedral left me speechless. Easy to find, we really enjoyed walking around the area and taking in the views of this magnificent church. Take your time and just wander through - there's a lot to take in.

“Impressive”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Impressive cathedral. Waiting queue looks long, but goes very quick. Unbelievable that they have been able to built this in that early period.

“Joyous atmosphere around”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I was fortunate to observe the procession and the experience the atmosphere. Though it was too crowded to visit inside due to time constraint on my side but still would recommend to visit this place.
