A fantastic building (and beautifully restored after the war time damage). The anatomical theater is a great bit of history - ans well as being beautiful. Well worth visiting.

Who knew there were anatomy studies in the 11th century. Interesting architecture. We did not take the guided tour but enjoyed spending time there.
