“Fifth stop on our cruise”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is an impressiv e looking building from the outside but we were not allowed inside, apparently it is only open for services. It is in a wonderful location overlooking the main harbour.

“Impressive Interior,Great view of the city!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The Cathedral has a very impressive interior and as it's free it's well worth visiting if you have some time to spare as it is only a short stroll from the market square.

If you stand outside of the cathedral you get some great views of the city as well.

There are some great photo opportunities here.

“Nice from the outside and inside also”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very good looking from the outside, well preserved and even if when you get close some parts like the stairs are not well maintained, the inside is worth the visit also.
