There is not a great deal to see here. If one is on a tight schedule than this can be given a skip. We stood in the queue to enter and were taken aback a little!

This is part of the cathedral visit. The statues are quite interesting but. You have to stand in a long queue for up to 30 minutes to climb to the top of the wall. They only allow a couple of dozen people through at any...More

Worth a visit. You wander around and mostly see the burial urns and frescoes on the walls. Cool on a hot day.
