  • Beautiful cathedral. Inside and outside. Inside is elegantly built with wide arches and width that is able to show that the cathedral is very well designed. Entrance is at the rear and shared with st Elena church. Cathedral and church can be seen in less than an hour. Worth visiting.
  • Good but don't plan too long here as there's a relatively limited amount to see. It's big and beautiful inside so well worth it but it doesn't take long to see. A fairly short walk away from the city centre.
