This old French cathedral is a historical building and easy to see right next to.the lovely old post office. It's easy to.imagine the former splendour but now the (re)construction is underway.

You will take many many pictures. It is so majestic against the blue sky. I did not get to go inside though. Naeby is the Post Office. That means you cover 2 tourist destination which are within walking distance

The cathedral is beautiful on the outside, but unfortunately i had to visualize it through the scaffold around it as it is being renovated. You cannot visit inside either as it is closed during the renovation.

I visited in April 2018, but the Cathedral was closed for repair/renovation. It’s a beautiful building from the outside; what a shame I couldn’t view the interior.

It's under large-scale renovation from mid-2017 to end-2019. It still attracts a lot of tourists both locals & foreigners as they hang around outside taking pictures and the nearby Central Post Office which is just across the road.
