  • Extremely interesting and impressive renaissance cathedral. Inside it is very interesting, and the only tower can be seen from the whole city.  more »
  • Walking to the roof top. The views was excellent. Plenty of people be warned. Narrow steps leading up & down the cathedral. A must visit.  more »

  • The inside is impressive - the audio guide is very dry and detailed - great if you are interested in all the iconography but too long for most of us. The rooftop tour is much more interesting. You get fantastic views over the harbour and the city and I think you can just get this tour on its own for €6. The courtyard on the right as you go towards the entrance is a lovely cool & shady spot to relax for a while out of the hot sun.
  • Nice little garden. There's a ticket to go in, which I don't like for places of worship. Only admired nice architecture & garden. There's probably a great view of the city from the top, which you also need to pay for (I think it's 6 euro visit/go up the roof, or 10 euro both)
