This is a very ornate cathedral in the grand style and there is quite a lot to see. The audioguide included in the entrance fee is informative. The cloisters are a peaceful place to sit and contemplate.

The external architecure of the cathedral is interesting but inside is a bit poor (comparing to other great cathedral). I find entrance fee quite high for seeing it (especially that it is a church that should be open for everybody).

Beautiful cathedral. We visited with young children and they both enjoyed seeing this. You receive an audio guide on the entrance which was really helpful.

It's worth the visit but I'm not sure if it's really worth the €5,- entrance fee. It's a nice cathedral to see but I've definitely visited other cathedrals that were more impressive

Well worth a visit, it is a little gem hidden away, most unusual but breath taking inside. Audio guide was a bit full on and not particularly clear. About 4 euros so not expensive.

Great architecture and the history of the Cathedral is available (in several languages), via headphones provided when you enter. Cost is 4 Euro per adult.

An interesting building with extremely good audio guides in a number of different languages which give a lot of information about the cathedral.

Unusual cathedral. Plenty to see. The audio-guide unfortunately was not very helpful: no indications of where the items commented on are situated...
