“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

we had not booked a tour but took a chance and were lucky enough to join a tour. Seeing the stained glass alone is worth the visit!

“Fantastic stained glass”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Never heard of it before noticing it in guide book. Access is only via guided tour but well worth it. We bought tickets for English language tour in morning for tour at 3pm that afternoon.
Tour guide was informative and building is well worth a visit.

Wow what a place. It takes your breath away. If you can hear a concert go if not go and take the tour it's well worth it

“Guided tour in a beautiful historical building”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Loved the guided tour in a small group. Easily heard. Right amount of time, very beautiful

Didn't like the ignorant tourists who wouldn't turn their flash off on their camera, despite the many requests to do so by the guide.

“Beautiful place!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We got to see an opera in a very beautiful setting. We booked the tickets before we went and they were really cheap. Nosebleed seats but great view.
