  • Enormous cathedral with unique architectural features. Back in the middle ages, the cathedral was fortified by the catholics against protestant attacks. Remnants of this fortification are the three huge towers (one collapsed) and the two rocket-like pillars. Beautiful stained glass windows. Beautiful and large organ.
  • I’ve been walking around it but it’s a huge cathedral with a beautiful architecture.
