Great architecture and interesting history. The cathedral is overlooking the sea so the location is quite nice too. Unfortunately they are restoring the facade so if you’re planning to take a pic of it you may be disappointed (my experience in Sep 2019). Other than that the building is worth visiting, it’s peaceful and architecturally remarkable.
Truly magnificent. Words and pictures can not do it justice. Go and visit and enjoy the colours of the place and the magnificent tiled floors. Pity the from is undergoing restoration atm (Aug2019) and is covered in scaffolding.
