A beautiful old cathedral with free entry. It is being 'cleaned' inside and amazing to see the difference it makes. If you like old buildings and architecture then it's well worth a visit.

Being 10th C in these parts, this cathedral was used as a model for many others. Romanesque basically means that the arches are semi-circular, so walls are massive to support the weight - the kind of thing you see in Norman castles in England. This...More
