  • We were quite impressed with the Cathedral. It is very large and we got there just after they opened and before lunch when they close. The stained glass is exceptional and the inside ceiling soars...

  • Loved it... Went with a friend for a different day trip. Its a beautiful peaceful space and the architecture is out of this world. The plaques in memoriam and windows are just stunning. If you can find a nice quiet space just to enjoy the vaulted ceilings.
  • I won’t say much about it, nearly 800 years of history? Pilgrimage site? If you were an UofG student, you must come here. Also, the necropolis nearby is an exciting place to visit. To add, I had the pleasure of listening to a concert in the church recently. It has excellent interior lighting and acoustics.
