This cathedral is worth visiting. Entrance fee - 3 euro. Come before 18-00. Don't miss the internal yard. Beautiful place, small museum.

Not as embelished as many other cathedrals we have seen but very interesting. Take the walk around the cloisters and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and also see some remnants of local pieces.

The balcony is under repair so we had to see past the scaffolding to appreciate its splender. However, this can be expected given its age and grandeur.

Nice cathedral but quite plain and nothing very impressive to mention. Nice cloisters and it only costs €3 to get in.

No. They just appreciate your attendance. Obviously short shorts would be seen as inappropriate but other than that, no dress code
