We went to see the Cathedral and also to buy a ticket for a concert which was held a few days later. The entry was about Euro7 (adult) so we decided not to buy it as we bought the tickets for a concert Euro 20...More

Looks great from the outside and there is a little gem of a playground. Armadillo and other animal statues are there to play....for kids. There is a charge to go inside....and I did not get to see the interior as there were lots to see...More

Here on a cruise tour, we attended an organ concert, which was excellent. During the concert there was certainly time to gaze at the various ornate elements of the church including their impressive organ. It was too crowded otherwise to do any sort of closer...More

Yet when inside a little disappointing in a bland kind of way. The cloisters are the most interesting part.

If your schedule allows it, don't miss the organ concerts. There are evening concerts, and also regular noon performances.

I didn't find this church as impressive as St. Peter's - less of it seemed accessible to tourists. I did light a candle there, though, for my (world traveler) aunt who recently passed.

It's a very nice cathedral in a very nice square but it's not worth a visit in. There is nothing to stare at.

I do visit loads of churches on holiday and expected this to be an exceptional cathedral. It was pretty average (cost 3 euros entry). I actually found the exhibits in the cloisters more interesting than the building itself.

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