  • I did not enter the cathedral with great pity for me, because the most beautiful things are in which part of the country, everything is paid....

  • Very beautiful Catholic Church, full of art. Visit the roof is worth it, you can see the town and the building structure. In the other hand, they don't give you any received from your payment, and you walk by your self with no explanation at all or for of anything. The place was full of tourist and no one was looking after the building, it was sad.
  • Well worth a visit. Get the full ticket. The tower is great so make the effort to visit it. Great view
