This cathedral is lovely inside - free to enter (just ask for a donation) and beautiful floor tiles, stained glass and dark and white stonework. Just off the city walls so easy to stop off for a few minutes on your walk round the city

This is a must stop if you are walking on the walls that surround the old city. It is a beautiful cathedral. I had an ancestor who was married in the cathedral in the 1600's, and the guide showed us the original records.
