I found it absolutely amazing to walk through and think how long ago people were going about their lives and church business in that very spot. I appreciated being able to wander the area of an archeological site and see the layout of the previous...More

What a wonderful gem of a space they found below the Cathedral. I have visited several ruins similar to this but I think this was one of the best displays of history. Easy walk through the place and very interesting. Well worth your time.

Have taken every tourist that comes to town to this site under the cathedral. probably one of the better "digs" in Europe. And an amazing pre-Christian surprise awaits you. I doubt anyone would be bored here....

This was an absolute surprise: the way this museum has been put together (architecturally, design wise, content and light design) is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best museums I have ever visited... While you walk under the existing Cathedral you see...More
