  • Interesting cathedral with a wooden interior structure and photogenic exterior. Free to get in, but you can donate if you wish. Near to shops, cafes, benches to sit on and a pretty fountain.
  • A more modest church with very nice organ. We happened on a free organ recital. We were really just ducking in to be out of the rain.
